The Ottawa mint opened in 1908 and produced gold Sovereigns under request from the Royal Mint, London, using gold mined in British Columbia and the Yukon. Coins made at this mint bear the letter C for Canada but production was limited; by the time the mint ceased production of sovereigns in 1919, there had been only 628,150 struck, mostly for export purposes. The Ottawa mint became the Royal Canadian Mint in 1931.
