The Marquis bread wheat cultivar was developed by Dominion Agriculturalist Charles Saunders in 1904. The 100th anniversary of this agricultural advancement is commemorated with this 14 karat collectable gold coin, featuring stalks of Marquis wheat swaying in the wind. The Marquis wheat cultivar was selected for superiority in milling quality for bread flour over other cultivars then prevalent in western Canada. Marquis had the advantage of maturing 10 days earlier than its competitors - a factor of great importance in the Canadian wheatbelt. 

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
