Some find the 80% Silver Canadian Dollars an attractive alternative to the U.S. Silver Dollar. These coins mark a time in Canadian history where the design of their silver dollar diverged from the functional look the coins had up until 1935. These coins had a portrait of King George V in his Imperial State Crown and wearing his special coronation robe. While this was a little ostentatious for a portrait of a sovereign leader on a coin, the reverse image was an art piece that told a story. The design shows a Native Canadian and a fur trader known to the people as a voyageur traveling in a canoe. Above them are the Northern Lights. In the background are evergreen trees. This design was rather ornate for Canada’s coins and ushered in the idea of making beautiful nature themed coins of other denominations. The “voyageur” design was used on the silver dollar until 1986.
The obverse of the coin changed several times during 1935-1967. It changed in 1937 when King George VI became king. It changed again in 1953 when Queen Elizabeth II became queen. Since she has been queen the design of the queen has been updated as she matured over the years.
