The third coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s Masters Club-exclusive series of historic proof dollar designs features the 1939 commemorative silver dollar celebrating the royal visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mother)—the first visit to Canada by a reigning British monarch.

Focused simply and elegantly on the Centre Block of Canadian Parliament, the reverse image highlights the stately Peace Tower. This Canadian icon is linked to the country’s status within the British Empire (now the Commonwealth) through Latin text honouring King George VI across the top of the reverse: “FIDE SVORVM REGNAT,” which translates to “He reigns by the faith of his people.” The obverse features a reproduction of the 1939 effigy of King George VI by British artist Humphrey Paget.

Unique gold plating on both the reverse and the obverse highlight the beauty of Emanuel Hahn and Humphrey Paget’s original designs and lend the images the matchless patina of gold.
