Description

Viewed by many as one of the most momentous periods of Canadian History, The Klondike Gold Rush of 1896 sparked a mass exodus of opportunistic migrants from their hometowns to the Canadian Yukon Territory and Alaska. Following the discovery of Gold near the Klondike and Yukon Rivers, around 100,000 people embarked on the treacherous journey which involved crossing dangerous ice valleys, and scaling rocky mountains. With around half of these opportunists dying from malnutrition, hypothermia or even the avalanches that fell along their route, whilst the risks attached to this treacherous expedition were significant, the rewards reaped by the few that arrived were substantial. 
Even though the so called ‘Gold Rush’ came to its culmination in 1899, the impact this period of history had on the external environment was remarkable – this event was credited with aiding the United States from vacating its period of depression. Furthermore, its importance to Canadian History is also prevalent in the present day with the population boom it initiated for the Yukon Territory, Alberta, British Columbia and Vancouver. 

Celebrating this iconic period of history in style, The Koin Club is extremely excited to release this Remarkable 1oz Silver 125th Anniversary of the Klondike Gold Rush $25 Coin, particularly special as it commemorates 125 since this iconic event in Canadian History – this is inscribed on the reverse of this Coin. 

Depicted in partial gold plating is illustrations of Gold which of course made the opportunists of the late 1890’s so rich. 

This Special Legal Tender Release depicts the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse, and comes housed in a Premium Black Box beautifully displaying your prized Coin.
