Beautifully engraved uncancelled certificate from the Bre-X Minerals Ltd. issued in 1997 for 500 shares. At its peak, 500 shares would have amounted to $140,000. This historic document was printed by the American Banknote Company and has an ornate border around it with a vignette of allegorical men by a globe and the company logo. This item has the printed signatures of the Company’s President and Secretary. Usually Bre-X certificates are for 1 share so to find a 500 share certificate is scarce.
