A nation’s character and spirit are often revealed in the designs of its circulation coins. For Canada, no other coin has done this more profoundly than the voyageur gold coin.
Canada’s first circulating silver dollar was introduced in 1935 to mark the Silver Jubilee celebrations for King George V. Its design featured a voyageur and Native person paddling a canoe in tribute to the fur trade; the industry that founded the nation—and the image of a vast untamed frontier it conveyed made it one of the most popular coin designs ever to enter circulation in Canada.
Limited volume of only 15,000 coins. It features a unique $150 denomination, a first ever for a 1oz .9999 Au gold bullion coin. Precision cut radial lines on the coin’s reverse and obverse exclusive to the Royal Canadian Mint creates a unique shimmer when held in light and acts as a visible security feature like no other as well as the visible micro-engraved security maple leaf featuring ‘17’ in the centre of the leaf. Packaged in a unique credit card style packaging featuring the official Canada 150 logo and an assay certificate on the back side of the card attesting to the purity and minimum guaranteed weight.
