The 1935 issue of a silver dollar by the Royal Canadian Mint was done to mark the Silver Jubilee celebrations of Englands King George V, and it became the first-ever silver dollar issued for circulation by the Royal Canadian Mint. The design also commemorated one of the nations founding economic drivers: the fur trade.
On the reverse of all 2017 1 oz Canadian Gold Voyageur 150th Anniversary Coins youll find the image of a two-man crew paddling a canoe as they traverse the waterways of Canada during the 18th century. The fur trade was a staple of the early economy in Canada, helping found the nation and bring new settlers to the area in search of wealth.
The obverse of all Canadian Gold Voyageur Coins includes a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty appears on all British and commonwealth coinage today, and this portrait was created in 2003 by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt.
Canada is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its Confederation movement, the first steps the nation took on its path to full independence from the direct rule of the United Kingdom. A series of stunning coins have been struck in 2017 to honor the occasion, with the Voyageur design on a silver and gold coin just the latest examples.
