Why should you choose this 2017 Canada Celebrating Canada's 150th - Voyageur Special Edition 1 oz. Silver $5 Coin for your collection?

The first 11-sided coin was released in 1987 and was quickly dubbed a "the loonie." This design of a loon was not the originally intended design as the original dies were lost in transit. If not for this happenstance, the one-dollar coin would have featured the Voyager image which was featured in 1935 on a dollar coin.

Because of this, the Royal Canadian Mint has released a two-part collection featuring both designs with the second coin features a historic voyageur. The coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 pure silver and is created as a counterpart to the gold set also released from the Royal Canadian Mint.

Featuring a piece of Canadian history

Appearing on the obverse is Susanna Blunt's portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II.

The obverse features the original design intended for the commonly known one-dollar loonie that of a Voyageur. The design created by Emanuel Hahn in a nod towards Canada's history of trade and pelt hunting.

GEM Brilliant Uncirculated Silver Coin

This coin achieved the designation of GEM Proof this means the coin is well-struck and is at least the grade of Proof 65 or higher along with assuring a visually appealing coin.
