2022 Canada $1 Coloured 175th Anniversary of the Birth of Alexander Graham Bell Special Wrapped Roll of 25pcs

The 175th Anniversary of the Birth of Alexander Graham Bell commemorative one-dollar coin honours his contributions and achievements, including a record-setting hydrofoil and the first powered aircraft to fly in Canada. Both the HD-4 and the Silver Dart made history on Nova Scotia’s Bras d’Or Lake, which is represented by blue waves on the 25 coins contained in each Colourized Special Wrap Roll.

Designed by Canadian artist Chris Gorey, the coin’s reverse commemorates the 175th anniversary (“175 YEARS/ANS”) of the birth of Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) by honouring his legacy of innovation. A reproduction of Bell’s signature is paired with a portrait of the inventor in his later years, when much of his scientific work was done at his estate in Baddeck, N.S. Those experiments are represented by schematic illustrations of the Silver Dart—the aircraft that achieved the first controlled, powered flight in Canada—and the record-setting HD-4 hydrofoil; both crafts made history on Bras d’Or Lake, represented by the waves that are highlighted in blue on the colourized coin. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Alexander Graham Bell’s legacy of innovation encompasses so much more than the telephone. Problem solving and critical thinking are key to many STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields, and Bell dedicated his life to solving challenges, whether it was sound transmission or aeronautics.

Even in his later years, Bell remained committed to scientific exploration and discovery, and he continued to do innovative work in various fields—including aviation, which was his main interest in the 1890s and early 1900s. His Aerial Experiment Association (AEA), which was managed and funded by his wife Mabel, laid the groundwork for the development of aviation in Canada.
