QUERY: Cdn. 1976 Gold Jubilee

Post by Joseph Kea » Tue, 06 May 1997 04:00:00



Hi

I have 2 1976 Queen II Gold (1/2 oz. each), and was wondering
if there is a premium for them?

The coinbs are both mint shape, with certificates and cases.

These coins have a face value of 100 dollars and were issued by
the Cdn. Mint to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Queen Elizabth's
25th year as Queen.

Not really, generally a couple bucks over bullion.  At times the
14K $100 has traded for around $100 Canadian.

They were issued in 1976 to celebrate the 21st Olypics, held in Montreal,
Canada and is part of an extensive issue of Olympic coins.
The 1976 Olympics has the dubious distinction of being the only
Olympics in which the host country didn't win a gold medal.

THe reverse was designed by Dora de Pedery-Hunt who also later
designed HRH's effigy which first appeared in 1990.

Joe,

I'm not 100% sure what coins you have. You said 1976, but you also said
"gold jubilee". There was a "Silver Jubilee" Commemorative in 1977. If
this is what you have, it will have a bunch of flowers on the reverse.
It was only minted in Proof as far as I know, and had mintage of "only"
180,396, about half the Olympic coin in proof. If this is the coin you
have, it may be worth a bit more--say $150-$200 Canadian--because of its
attractiveness...if you find a willing buyer.

On the other hand, if you have on the reverse a walking *** man next to
a posed lady in a long gown, and there is some Greek-looking writing at
the bottom, then you do indeed have the more common and unfortunately
less desirable Olympic issue of 1976.

I am curious about this, and would like to know what the outcome is.
