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 dollar. Canada’s first circulating dollar was introduced in 1935 to mark the 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. The voyageur dollar was designed by renowned Toronto sculptor, Emanuel Hahn, making it one of Canada’s first domestically- designed coins and great source of pride. Even though the Royal Canadian Mint had begun striking Canada’s coins in 1908, the designs, tools and dies were still being produced by the Royal Mint in England.

Largely unchanged from the design that appeared on Canadian dollars from 1935 to 1986, the “Voyageur” image by sculptor and artist Emanuel Hahn is a powerful nod to Canada’s early history and its reputation as an untamed frontier during the fur trade era. In the centre of the coin’s reverse is where 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, a bundle of wrapped furs are marked “HB” for Hudson’s Bay Company, while stylized vertical rays above represent the aurora borealis lighting up the sky.
