The 2017 1 oz Gold Canadian Voyageur 150th Anniversary Coin from the Royal Canadian Mint marks the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation with the revival of a popular 1935 coin design. Released that year to mark King George V’s Silver Jubilee on the throne of England, the design was the first to appear on the nation’s inaugural silver dollar circulation release.
On the reverse of these gold coins is the image of a native tribal member at the bow of a canoe leading a European fur trader who paddles the canoe from the stern of the craft. First Nation tribes often teamed with newcomers in the early decades to help them navigate waterways in search of fur from beavers and other creatures.
