Numismatic Note: This coin type has two versions, this one features “No Shoulder Fold” as seen on the NGC slab. Canada is a country, consisting of ten provinces and t hree territories, in the northern part of the continent of North America. It extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean, covering 9.98 million square kilometres (3.85 million square miles) in total, making it the world’s second-largest country by total area and the fourth-largest country by land area. Canada’s common border with the United States forms the world’s longest land border. Canada is sparsely populated overall, the majority of its land territory being dominated by forest and tundra as well as the mountain range of the Rocky Mountains; about four-fifths of the population live near to the southern border. The majority of Canada has a cold or severely cold winter climate, but southerly areas are warm in summer. The land now called Canada has been inhabited for millennia by various Aboriginal peoples. Beginning in the late 15th century, British and French colonies were established on the region’s Atlantic coast. As a consequence of various conflicts, the United Kingdom gained and lost North American territories until left, in the late 18th century, with what mostly comprises Canada today. Pursuant to the British North America Act, on July 1, 1867, three colonies joined to form the autonomous federal Dominion of Canada. This began an accretion of provinces and territories to the new self-governing Dominion. In 1931, Britain granted Canada near total independence with the Statute of Westminster 1931 and full sovereignty was attained when the Canada Act 1982 severed the vestiges of legal dependence on the British parliament. Canada is a federal parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, Queen Elizabeth II being the current head of state. The country is officially bilingual at the federal level. It is one of the world’s most ethnically diverse and multicultural nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many countries, with a population of approximately 35 million as of 2015. Its advanced economy is the eleventh largest in the world, relying chiefly upon its abundant natural resources and well-developed international trade networks. Canada’s long and complex relationship with the United States has had a significant impact on its economy and culture. Canada is a developed country and one of the wealthiest in the world, with the tenth highest nominal per capita income globally, and the eighth highest ranking in the Human Development Index. It ranks among the highest in international measurements of government transparency, civil liberties, quality of life, economic freedom, and education. Canada is a Commonwealth Realm member of the Commonwealth of Nations, a member of the Francophonie, and part of several major international and intergovernmental institutions or groupings including the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the G8, the Group of Ten, the G20, the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.

The 1978 Clarenville Incident is a compelling account that can’t be easily dismissed since it involved several witnesses, including an RCMP officer who described a strange sight that has never been satisfactorily explained. October 26, 1978, 1:45 a. Responding to a call, RCMP Constable James Blackwood arrived at the scene in Clarenville, N. Where witnesses directed his attention to a brightly lit object in the sky. Using binoculars and a high-powered scope, they observed the fin-tailed, oval-shaped craft as it hovered above the water near Random Island. It emitted no sound; and when the officer flashed the lightbar on his police cruiser, the mysterious craft instantly mimicked the lights. It remained in the area for nearly an hour before rising up suddenly and vanishing into the night, leaving no trace of its passage except a credible eyewitness account. BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND.

Pure Silver Coin with Rose Gold Plating – 2018 Big Coin Series: Voyageur Dollar – Mintage: 1,500 (2018). The Voyageur silver dollar represents a pivotal moment in the evolution of Canadian national identity. World War I and the Great Depression had changed perceptions about Canada’s colonial relationship with Great Britain, sovereignty, and global role. In 1931, the Royal Mint in Ottawa was transferred to the Canadian government, becoming the Royal Canadian Mint. The Voyageur was the new Mint’s first fully Canadian circulation coin design. Emanuel Hahn’s image of two men in a canoe changed the face of Canadian coin design thereafter. Following its release, Canadian circulation coinage adopted distinctly Canadian reverse images. An important addition for any collector interested in Canadian minting history! A GORGEOUS VOYAGEUR DOLLAR COIN DESIGN! Pure silver 1-dollar coin features the historic Voyageur design by famed Canadian sculptor Emanuel Hahn, first issued in 1935. SELECTIVE ROSE GOLD PLATING! Special selective rose gold plating technique allows your coin’s engraved elements to shine, adding visual interest to the iconic design! FIRST IN 7 COIN SERIES! The Voyageur coin is the first in our exciting 7-coin series of 5-ounce pure silver versions of current and historical Canadian circulation coinage! 5 OUNCE PURE SILVER! Your coin is crafted from five ounce 99.99% pure silver! Your coin has a diameter of 65.25 mm and a nominal metal weight of 157.6 grams! The ideal diameter and weight for such a beautiful design! Your coin includes a serialized certificate! Limited to 1,500 coins worldwide. Your coin is GST/HST exempt. Your 99.99% pure silver 1-Dollar coin has a diameter of 65 millimetres and a metal weight of 157.6 grams. Its reverse features Emanuel Hahn’s iconic Voyageur image, present on Canadian silver dollars from 1935 to 1986. A canoe carries a European voyageur paddling at the stern and a First Nations man paddling at the bow. Between them are bundles of wrapped furs. The bundle closest to the bow is marked with the initials “HB” for Hudson’s Bay Company. In the background, two wind-swept pines rise from the centre of a smooth, semi-circular island. Stylized vertical rays representing the northern lights cross the sky. On the reverse the engraved elements, including the canoe, travellers, and pines are gold-plated. The reverse is engraved with the words “CANADA” and “DOLLAR” and the date “2018″. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Her Majesty’s portrait is gold-plated. Though it was Canada’s first circulation 1-Dollar silver coin, the famed 1935 Voyageur was not Canada’s first silver dollar design. In 1910, a silver dollar design featuring a crown and a wreath of maple leaves was created by the Royal Mint; however, the death of King Edward VII on May 6 pushed back plans for the new coin. Hahn’s first proposed design for the silver dollar was an image of a caribou. Though rejected for the 1-Dollar denomination, it would eventually become the reverse image for the Canadian 25-Cent piece, and remains so today. Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with graphic beauty box. 99.99% pure silver. Emanuel Hahn (reverse), Susanna Blunt (obverse).

The reverse design features a reproduction of the 17th century mariner’s astrolabe found near Cobden, Ontario, and popularly associated with French explorer-cartographer Samuel de Champlain. Used to determine latitude, the navigational tool-turned-treasure is cast in silver and bronze plated on this coin; it is backed by an engraved reproduction of Champlain’s hand-drawn map of New France (1632), which is framed by the astrolabe’s graduated scale. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Champlain’s “lost” astrolabe. This idea sprang forth in the 19th century after the astrolabe’s discovery, but Champlain’s detailed account of his 1613 expedition up the Ottawa River contains no mention of a lost navigational instrument. Nevertheless, the mariner’s astrolabe bears the date “1603″ and lay on a rare portage route used by Champlain; the French explorer would have used an astrolabe in his many voyages at sea and while charting the coasts and waterways of eastern Canada. Another theory holds that the astrolabe could have belonged to missionaries or other travellers who used the same route as Champlain. The astrolabe was found in August 1867. A 14-year-old boy was helping his father clear trees on the shores of Green Lake (now Astrolabe Lake) near Cobden, Ontario, when he unearthed a brass disk. In June 1989, the Canadian government acquired it and conferred it to the Canadian Museum of Civilization (now the Canadian Museum of History), where it proudly resides. The astrolabe is missing a piece. The Cobden astrolabe is the smallest of the surviving 17th century mariner´s astrolabes and is in excellent condition, except for one missing piece: a small ring to which a weight would be attached in order to steady the instrument. The ring was still intact in an 1879 photograph, so it likely broke off in the late 19th century. Mariner’s astrolabe is a simplified astrolabe. Made of brass or bronze, it was designed for use at sea; its four windows allowed the breezes to pass through while a weight at the bottom kept it steady. It was a common navigational instrument in the 16th and 17th centuries, but only a hundred or so exist today including the famous one highlighted on this coin. Of the 100 astrolabes that have survived to this day, at least five are known to be in Canada. They include: a Spanish astrolabe ca. And held by Parks Canada; the Cobden astrolabe (1603) presumably made in Honfleur, France, and represented on this coin; two astrolabes a French one (1617) and a Portuguese one (1638) discovered at Isle-aux-Morts, N. And held at The Rooms in St. And a Portuguese one (1632) preserved at the Sulpician Vieux Séminaire in Old Montreal. Another astrolabe (1593) discovered in Cuba by a team of Canadian underwater treasure hunters likely resides in a private collection in Canada. Your coin is individually encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box. Please Pay Within 3 Days of Closing. International Buyers Please Note.
