1937 Silver Dollar

“This was Canada’s first silver dollar (there are a few in collectors’ hands dated 1911 but they were never circulated). From the northern lights playing over the sand-blasted pines to the voyageur’s canoe loaded with furs stamped HB for the Hudson’s Bay Company, the coin is a compressed anthology of Canadian shapes. Take away the word Canada, and any Canadian would still know at a glance that this design could only have been struck by one national mint in the world: their own.”

-Pierre Berton, The Canadian Look
