Product Description

Attention collectors! This exclusive 2-Coin Pure Silver Proof Set celebrates the 30th anniversary of Canada's beloved loonie circulating dollar, with two UNIQUE and unprecedented 99.99% pure silver proof-finish dollars - and a ridiculously affordable price!

Investment Opportunity!Talisman Coins and the Royal Canadian Mint are honoured to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Loonie Dollar! To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Canada’s favorite golden-hued circulation coin, this exquisite two-coin set revisits history by featuring the now-iconic loonie alongside the originally-proposed design for the circulation dollar - Canada’s $1 circulation Voyageur coin that never was!

Affectionately dubbed "the loonie," Canada's $1 circulation coin has become a cherished national symbol for Canadians since its debut on June 30, 1987. The now-ubiquitous image of a loon looms large in Canadian iconography, but it wasn't the design originally intended for the circulating dollar! Had the original Voyageurs dies not vanished in transit, the famous Voyageur image would appear where the loon swims today.

2005 First Day of Minting Obverse & ReverseObverse - Loonie Silver Dollar
The Loonie silver dollar displays the design by Canadian artist Robert-Ralph Carmichael that has become synonymous with Canada’s currency: the iconic side-profile portrait of a common loon on a still lake. Here, the application of selective platinum plating shines the spotlight on the distinctive waterfowl, as it floats past the conifers rising up on a small island in the background. The entire scene is representative of the lakes that dot the Canadian Shield across much of the nation, and includes the engraved legends CANADA and DOLLAR, along with the commemorative dual dates 1987-2017 to mark the 30th anniversary of Canada’s circulating loonie dollar.

Obverse - Voyageurs Silver Dollar
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 represents the one dollar circulation coin that never was. Largely unchanged from the design that appeared on Canadian silver dollars from 1935 to 1986, the “Voyageurs” image by sculptor and artist Emanuel Hahn is a powerful nod to Canada’s early history and its reputation as an untamed frontier during the fur trade era. Selective platinum plating highlights the engraved scene in the center, where a canoe moves swiftly past the wind-swept pines that dot a semi-circular island. A voyageur paddles at the stern, while a Native American paddles at the bow. Between them we see a bundle of wrapped furs marked “HB”, for Hudson’s Bay Company, while stylized vertical rays above represent the aurora borealis (northern lights) lighting up the sky. The design also features the engraved legends CANADA and DOLLAR, along with the dual dates 1987-2017 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of circulating loonie dollar. The reverse features selective platinum plating on the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt as well as on the rim.
