A nation’s character and spirit are often revealed in the designs of its circulation coins. For Canada, no other coin has done this more profoundly than the voyageur silver dollar.

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.

Limited volume of only 15,000 coins. It features a unique $150 denomination, a first ever for a 1 oz .9999 Au gold bullion coin. Precision cut radial lines on the coin’s reverse and obverse exclusive to the Royal Canadian Mint creates a unique shimmer when held in light and acts as a visible security feature like no other as well as the visible micro-engraved security maple leaf featuring ‘17’ in the centre of the leaf. Packaged in a unique credit card style packaging featuring the official Canada 150 logo and an assay certificate on the back side of the card attesting to the purity and minimum guaranteed weight.

Largely unchanged from the design that appeared on Canadian silver dollars from 1935 to 1986, the “Voyageur” image by sculptor and artist Emanuel Hahn is a powerful nod to Canada’s early history and its reputation as an untamed frontier during the fur trade era. In the centre of the coin’s reverse is where a canoe moves swiftly past the wind-swept pines that dot a semi-circular island. A voyageur paddles at the stern, while an Aboriginal paddles at the bow; between them, a bundle of wrapped furs are marked “HB” for Hudson’s Bay Company, while stylized vertical rays above represent the aurora borealis lighting up the sky.
