2021 Canada $1 The Quintessential Voyageur Dollar Kilo Fine Silver (No Tax)

The quintessential Canadian collector coin has been renewed, honouring yesterday’s artistry and today’s engraving techniques. Crafted in 99.99% pure silver, this kilo coin pays tribute to both the Voyageur Dollar and its artist, Emanuel Hahn. His nostalgic image of Canada is given a place of honour on this stunning coin. But instead of re-creating the design previously featured on Canadian dollar coins (1935-1986), we went back to Hahn’s concept drawings to bring his artistic vision to life, with all its nuanced details, and on a much larger fine silver canvas than he could have ever imagined.

Your coin’s reverse features an early version of Emanuel Hahn’s Voyageur design, which appeared on Canadian dollar coins issued between 1935 and 1986. It is based on an original pencil sketch that is part of the National Currency Collection of the Bank of Canada Museum, located in Ottawa, Ontario. Beneath the aurora borealis, a voyageur and an Indigenous guide paddle a fur-laden canoe past wind-swept pines that rise up from a semi-circular island. The obverse pays tribute to the 85th anniversary of the last issue year (1936) of Sir E.B. MacKennal’s portrait of King George V; this effigy appeared on Canadian coins from 1911 to 1936, with the 1935 silver dollar being the only exception. The portrait is surrounded with the Latin legend, “GEORGVS V REX IMPERATOR ANNO REGNI XXV” (George V, King and Emperor, 25th Year of Reign), honouring the first Voyageur Dollar issued in 1935 to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King George V.

Special Features:
• Canada’s most famous commemorative coin, the Voyageur Dollar, is re-imagined as a limited-edition collectible crafted in 1 kg of 99.99% pure silver.
• It looks familiar but it’s not quite the same – your silver kilo coin features an early version of Emanuel Hahn’s now-iconic Voyageur design. The reverse is based on one of the artist’s preliminary concepts, which are preserved in the National Currency Collection of the Bank of Canada Museum located in Ottawa, Ontario. This is a unique glimpse of the evolution of a classic Canadian design.
• The Voyageur Dollar was Canada’s first domestically designed piece, our first commemorative coin and our first circulating silver dollar. It was also the Royal Canadian Mint’s first collaboration with artist Emanuel Hahn, whose designs still appear on some of our circulation coins today.
• Just 400 of these spectacular coins are available to collectors worldwide.

Packaged in a black beauty box, your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded wooden case
