This two-coin commemorative set features a 99.99% pure silver edition of the now-classic “loonie” design that graces the reverse of Canada’s $1 circulation coin. Next to it, the second coin re-creates the coin’s intended one-dollar design for the 1987 coin—it’s how our $1 coin would have appeared, had the dies not vanished…DESIGNThe first coin features the design by Canadian artist Robert-Ralph Carmichael that has become synonymous with Canada’s currency: the iconic side-profile portrait of a common loon on a still lake, where it floats past the Group of Seven-esque trees rising up on a small island behind it. The entire scene is representative of the lakes that dot the Canadian Shield across much of the nation, and includes the engraved words “CANADA” and “DOLLAR”, along with the commemorative dates “1987-2017” to mark the 30th anniversary of Canada’s $1 circulation coin.The second coin represents the one-dollar circulation coin that never was. Much as it appeared on Canada’s silver dollar between 1935 and 1986, the “Voyageur” design by sculptor and artist Emanuel Hahn is a nod to Canada’s early history and the fur trade era. A canoe moves swiftly past the wind-swept pines that dot a semi-circular island. A voyageur paddles at the stern, while an Aboriginal paddles at the bow; between them lies a bundle of wrapped furs, while stylized vertical rays above represent the Aurora borealis. The reverse also features the engraved words “CANADA” and “DOLLAR”, along with the commemorative dates “1987-2017”.Both coins feature the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt on the obverse.SPECIAL FEATURES- Not one, Canada’s “loonie” turns 30! Two pieces of Canadian coin history are yours to own in this special two-coin set that revisits the 1987 debut of Canada’s $1 circulation coin.- RCM history re-visited! A special edition of the “loonie” is paired with the Voyageur design that was intended to appear on the one-dollar coin. It’s a unique opportunity to view what is next to what could have been—the coin that never was!- A faithful representation—but in silver! The two 99.99% pure silver coins are shaped just like the 11-sided circulation piece!- Both encapsulated coins come ready for display, and are placed side-by-side inside the clamshell case. It’s a unique addition to your collection, and a great conversation piece about the story behind one of Canada’s most famous coins!PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONSMintage: 10,000Finish: ProofEdge: SerratedArtist: Robert-Ralph Carmichael and Emanuel HahnPackaging: Maroon clamshell with black beauty boxFace Value: Dollar – VoyageurComposition: 99.99% pure silverWeight* (g): 7.89Diameter (mm): 26.5Edge: PlainFace Value: Dollar – LoonComposition: 99.99% pure silverWeight* (g): 7.89Diameter (mm): 26.5Edge: PlainLAUNCH DATE: June 6th, 2017ADVERTISING DATE: June 6th, 2017 Condition: Original Condition, Modified Item: No, Country/Region of Manufacture: Canada
