Like other coins produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, the obverse features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Inscriptions include Her Majesty’s name and the coin’s denomination of 150 dollars. Another hallmark of the RCM is their attention to security and authenticity. Both sides of this coin feature precision-cut radial lines that create a unique shimmer when held up in light.
First seen on Canadian silver dollars from 1935 to 1986 and designed by Emanuel Hahn, the reverse’s design provides a nod to Canada’s early history as an untamed frontier during the fur trade era. The focal point is a canoe manned by a voyageur and an Aboriginal, with a bundle of wrapped furs between the figures. Vertical rays in the sky represent the aurora borealis. Inscriptions include the year of issue, weight, purity, and a mention that the coin is a 150 year special edition. You’ll also find a micro-engraved maple leaf with a “17” in the center for security.
The Voyageur coin was originally introduced in 1935 as Canada’s first circulating silver dollar, marking the Silver Jubilee celebrations for King George V. Its design captured the spirit of the frontier nation and became one of the most popular coin designs ever circulated in Canada. The new special edition 2017 release features the same classic design, with a few modern upgrades like the mint’s famed security features.
Each coin comes encased in premium credit card-style packaging, featuring the official Canada 150 logo and an assay certificate on the back of the card.
