ER363 Rare 1992 Canada Mint Error Off Medal Gold Proof NGC PR67, KM215
ER363 Rare 1992 Canada Mint Error Off Medal Gold Proof NGC PR67 Ultra Cameo, cf. The gold piece in this pair is an interesting and highly unusual off-metal striking, in which the dies for the original silver issue were used in tandem with a planchet for a contemporary 1 oz gold Maple Leaf. The diameter of the gold planchet (30mm) expanded during the striking process to the size of the dies (40mm), thus accounting for the slightly odd nature to the rims of this piece, as there was not quite enough metal to fill the entire area demanded by the dies. Full Gem quality, both with delightfully frosted devices and exceptionally mirrored surfaces. A wonderful modern numismatic enigma of undeniable beauty, and certain to appeal to the highest-tier collector of Mint errors. This is one of the rarest, most expensive and spectacular Canadian coins known. This special striking in gold of a proof commemorative coin was unknown to the numismatic community and was just certified and authenticated by NGC. It is the size of a U.
