The Royal Canadian Mint has released a series of gold and silver coins to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada. The Voyageur coin, in particular, is a recreation of the classic 1935 silver dollar design – originally issued to honour King George V of England’s Silver Jubilee and Canada’s economic roots.
The obverse of the coin includes the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Susanna Blunt, as well as the denomination and 2017 – the year of release and the year of the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada.
The reverse of the coin depicts the image of a canoe carrying furs with a European trader and native padding downstream – a tribute to the pioneering spirit and the fur trade that were both instrumental in creating the country. The canoe is set against the backdrop of an island of pines – the wild nature of the vast untamed frontier of the country at its finest. The reverse also includes a Canadian maple leaf seal and the 150-anniversary marker.
