2022 Canada Alexander Graham Bell: Great Inventor Fine Silver Proof Dollar (No Tax)

A dedication to understanding the world around him and an ability to envision a brighter future were the driving forces of Alexander Graham Bell’s (1847-1922) life. In honour of the 175th anniversary of his birth, the 2022 Proof Dollar celebrates Bell’s lifelong commitment to science and innovation.

More than just the telephone, Bell’s many inventions and varied pursuits made him a significant contributor to our modern world. Those contributions, along with key words from his life story, are listed in the word-art portrait featured on the 2022 Proof Dollar, which harnesses the power of language to present a more complete picture of this Great Inventor.

The 2022 Fine Silver Proof Dollar features a reverse design by Canadian artist and RCM translation and official languages specialist, Armand Nina. Its word-art portrait of inventor Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) is composed of various words that represent different aspects of his life, accomplishments and legacy. An experimental model of Bell’s most famous contribution to science and technology, the telephone, appears to the left of the inventor, while Bell’s signature appears near the rim. The reverse includes the word “CANADA”, the face value, “DOLLAR” and the year “2022”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
