Description

In honour of the 350th anniversary of HudsonÕs Bay Company (HBC), a piece from its past was taken and paired with a present-day coin obverse. The result? An outstanding token replica coin that strikes a balance between ÒthenÓ and Ònow.Ó The reverse design is a near-exact reproduction of an HBC trade token from the fur trade era. Preserved in 99.99% pure silver, the companyÕs classic coat of arms represents 350 years of history and symbolizes the evolution of a company and a country, of commerce and currency.

Incorporated in 1670, HudsonÕs Bay Company (HBC) is CanadaÕs oldest company. As the nation evolved, so did the company: its commercial pursuits were a crucial part of CanadaÕs earliest industries and development; its trading posts became CanadaÕs cities and towns; and its fur-trading empire evolved into the modern retail giant of today. Mintage is limited to 10,000. HST/GST exempt.

The reverse design is a faithful reproduction of a 19th-century fur trade token issued by HudsonÕs Bay Company. Framed by an oak wreath, the companyÕs coat of arms features elk supporters and a silver shield with the cross of St. George and four beavers (one in each quarter). The crest depicts a fox sitting on the cap of maintenance. The company motto ÒPRO PELLE GUTEMÓ (Latin for Òa pelt for a skinÓ) appears below the shield on a banderole. The obverse features the year Ò2020Ó, the face value Ò10 DOLLARSÓ, and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
