Question
hi.... I read a old post 8/27/2010 about a guy who bought a gold plated 1967 set.the set is not in its original package but was indeed put out by the mint. I know because. I own a set in the same mint packaging as all other proof-like sets but it has gold plated coins not silver. I have been hunting for years about info on these, but to no avail

Answer
Hi David,
The question from 2010 that you reference, the person asking specifically stated in their question that the coins are not from a mint set. That does not apply to your coins.
The 1867-1967 commemorative set was issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in a gold plated version in addition to the normal silver set. The plated set was issued in lower numbers and has a  market value currently between $50 and $75, which double or more what the regular silver set sells for.
Thanks for the question! =)

Expertise

My specialty is world coins from the 18th to 20th centuries, primarily non-US foreign coins and related areas such as errors and exonumia (tokens, medals, etc.). I can answer questions relating to identification, grading, selling, preservation and evaluation of such items. In addition to catalog value, I can give you the practical market value and trends for specific types of coins. I will also take questions regarding counterfeits (both modern and antique) and on how to identify them. I am NOT knowledgeable in paper money/banknotes, ancient or "shipwreck" coins. Thank you.
