Five-Dollar Gold Coin Denomination 

Five-dollar gold coins issued from 1912 to 1914 represent one of the shortest-lived and most sought-after denominations of Canadian coins. The design of this coin features the old Dominion of Canada coat-of-arms superimposed upon two boughs of maple. Initially introduced to facilitate trade with the United States by matching the size, weight and fineness of the popular US five-dollar gold coin, production of these coins was halted in 1914 when Canada adopted new wartime legislation to restrict the flow of gold. Struck in 22-karat gold, the five-dollar gold coin contains about a quarter-ounce of fine gold.

"C" Sovereign Gold Coin 
One of the first coins struck at Canada's new mint when it opened in 1908 was a one-pound gold coin with "C" mint mark below the design of Saint George and the Dragon. These coins were originally intended to facilitate trade with Britain, and were legal tender in Canada with a four-dollar value while also being legal tender in the UK for one pound. Canadian gold sovereign coins were produced only from 1908 to 1919.
