The 1936 Canadian Silver Dollar was struck with .800 fine silver. It is 36mm in diameter and 0.28mm thick with a reeded edge. These coins are of random condition, and will be chosen by us from available inventory.
The obverse features a crowned and robed George V designed by E. B. MacKennal. The motto in Latin reads “George V By The Grace Of God King and Emperor of India.” Designed by Emanuel Hahn, the reverse shows a French Canadian “Voyageur," legendary fur traders and heroes of folklore, traveling in a canoe with an Indian partner. Below the canoe is the date 1936. Inscribed along the top border is “CANADA,” and along the bottom is the coin’s face value value.
The first Canadian Dollar was minted in 1935 to commemorate the 25th year of George V's reign. The 1936 Canadian Silver Dollar, minted the same year of George V's death, saw a mintage of just 339,600, making it a rare find for any collection!
