Introduced in 1935 in honour of King George V’s Silver Jubilee, the Voyageur Dollar is a
snapshot of the past, and its creation ushered in a new era of coinage in Canada. It was
this nation’s first domestically designed piece, its first commemorative coin, as well as its first circulation silver dollar, and its popularity endures today. The Royal Canadian Mint proudly introduces this prestigious collector’s item, which is crafted in one kilogram of 99.99% pure gold and features an early version of Emanuel Hahn’s coin design that so perfectly captured Canada’s spirit. It is our way of honouring yesterday’s artistry using today’s engraving techniques. Mintage is limited to 45 coins worldwide. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

Your gold kilo coin features an early version of Emanuel Hahn’s now- iconic Voyageur design. The reverse is based on one of the artist’s preliminary concepts, which are preserved in the National Currency Collection of the Bank of Canada Museum located in Ottawa, Ontario. This is a unique glimpse of the evolution of a classic Canadian design.

The obverse pays tribute to the 85th anniversary of the last issue year (1936) of Sir E.B. MacKennal’s portrait of King George V, while the Latin inscription appeared on the first Voyageur Dollar issued in1935.
