The first Canadian $100 gold coin was produced in 1976, many people are interested in learning how much they are worth now, let’s have a look below.
Question / Inquiry:
Could I have a price on a 1976 100 dollar gold coin Canadian? It is the 22 karat 1976 canadian 100 dollar gold coin and I was wondering what it’s value would be to you to buy.
Answer / Reply:
The 1976 Canadian $100 gold coin comes in a couple different forms and karats. 1976 was the year of the Montreal Olympics and there were many Olympic coins were produced in both gold and silver.
You mentioned you have the 22 karat 1976 Canadian gold coin, that particular coin weighs 16.9 grams and is 91.6% actual gold content which is equivalent to 22k. With the current spot price of $1,662.00 US dollars we would pay $665.00 for your coin.
If you are intimately familiar with the 1976 coins it could be difficult to tell them apart, because both the uncirculated and proof 22k and 14k are extremely well made it would be easy for a novice to get the two mixed up or to be fooled into thinking the 14k coin is actually the 22k coin. The difference in actually coin is negligible (approximately 3.6 grams) so if you don’t have a scale it would be hard to tell the difference weight.
The one measurable difference if you have them both in front of you is their respective colors. The 22k coin has a much deeper yellow color do to it’s higher actual gold content. The other thing that could confuse you is that the 14k less valuable coin is actually slightly larger than the 22k coin, the 14k is 27mm in diameter while the 22k coin is actually 25mm wide.
