Description

Canada’s first circulating silver dollar was introduced in 1935 to mark the Silver Jubilee celebrations for King George V. Its design featured a voyageur and Native person paddling a canoe in tribute to the fur trade; the industry that founded the nation—and the image of a vast untamed frontier it conveyed made it one of the most popular coin designs ever to enter circulation in Canada.

The voyageur silver dollar was designed by renowned Toronto sculptor, Emanuel Hahn, making it one of Canada’s first domestically-designed coins and great source of pride. Even though the Royal Canadian Mint had begun striking Canada’s coins in 1908, the designs, tools and dies were still being produced by the Royal Mint in England.

Special features:

  • Features a $5 denomination, the highest made available on a one oz silver legal tender bullion coin
  • Precision cut radial lines on the coin’s reverse and obverse exclusive to the Royal Canadian Mint create a unique shimmer when held in light and acts as a visible security feature like no other.
  • A visible micro-engraved security maple leaf featuring ’17’ in the centre of the leaf.
  • Packaged in a monster box of 500 coins, sealed with a special security seal.
