Description

The 175th Anniversary of the Birth of Alexander Graham Bell commemorative one-dollar coin honours his contributions and achievements, including a record-setting hydrofoil and the first powered aircraft to fly in Canada. Both the HD-4 and the Silver Dart are depicted on the $1 coin, and every Special Wrap Roll adds 25 of these innovation-themed collectibles to your collection.

Designed by Canadian artist Chris Gorey, the coin’s reverse commemorates the 175th anniversary (“175 YEARS/ANS”) of the birth of Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) by honouring his legacy of innovation. A reproduction of Bell’s signature is paired with a portrait of the inventor in his later years, when much of his scientific work was done at his estate in Baddeck, N.S. Those experiments are represented by schematic illustrations of the Silver Dart—the aircraft that achieved the first controlled, powered flight in Canada—and the record-setting HD-4 hydrofoil; both crafts made history on Bras d’Or Lake. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
