An Historic Design
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 American paddling a canoe in tribute to the fur trade, the industry that founded the nation. The image of a vast untamed frontier it conveyed made it one of the most popular coin designs ever to enter circulation in Canada. The scene is illuminated from behind by the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), which speak to the natural wonders and grandeur of the vast country.

The obverse and reverse of the historic Canada 1935 Silver Dollar, commemorating King George V's silver Jubilee (25th Anniversary), and the first to feature the famed Voyageurs design. The voyageur silver dollar was designed by renowned Toronto sculptor Emanuel Hahn, making it one of Canada’s first domestically-designed coins and a great source of pride. Even though the Royal Canadian Mint had begun striking Canada’s coins in 1908, the designs, tools and dies were still being produced by the Royal Mint in England. This was the case for the coins that were already in circulation when the voyageur silver dollar was introduced. While they were engraved by European sculptors, the presence of maple leaves in their designs hinted at an ever-expanding national identity for a young Canada. In 1935, the voyageur silver dollar brought the essence of the nation’s character to the forefront. It evoked the spirit of adventure that first lured explorers and voyageurs across the continent - an epic ideal that continues to inspire centuries later. The detail of the engraving is such that the letters “HB” for “Hudson Bay Company” can be seen on one of the trade bundles.

The paintingThe Voyageurs
Canada's early history is one of exploration and discovery. Throughout North America the fur traders (French: voyageurs or coureurs de bois) who opened up the wilderness on the highways of water did more than just trap animals and sell their hides. They met with the Native Americans, learned their languages and ways, and created maps where once there was just blank space on a map.

The lure of wealth transcended class and social status as hundreds of men climbed aboard their canoes to head into the unknown for months, sometimes even years. Paddling up to 90 strokes per minute, they traveled thousands of miles, circumventing perilous rapids by loading each man with 200 lbs of cargo to carry across countless portages. Bear fat, corn, and pemmican were their staples and they had little more than the trees to shield them from the elements and the unrelenting flies.
