AR Canada Dry Token

Recommended Posts

Does this coin costy more then justs its bullion value? Does it have a premium?


Here's my description of the coin:


AR 1 oz. In script, the text "This is the Champagne of Ginger Ales" around bust of J.J. McLaughlin. Beneath bust, text in 4 lines "World Famous Words of J. J. McLaughlin, inventor of CANADA DRY. Toronto 1904". Border of dots. / Coat of Arms of Canada Dry, beneath "ONE TROY OUNCE - 24K FINE GOLD". Incuse gold mark beneath.

Certificate of authenticity included.



More pictures will be given also.


Best regards,

Did you mean AV (gold) instead of AR (silver)?


Anyways, if it's 1 oz of gold, I highly doubt that any soft drink memorabilia collector would value it more highly than its gold scrap value.


Probably a pretty scarce prize from the looks of it.

The closest things I've come across is stuff for Coca Cola and Barbie, but those were in silver, so it's a lot easier for a collector to pay $50-100 for something like that. (and thus a premium over melt/scrap)


But even with a more recognized name (e.g. Coca Cola), I think the the premium would likely be marginal.
