For the first one dollar coin issued by Canada, this design by Percy Metcalf depicts His Majesty King George VI in the 25th year of his reign. Although like the 1911 coins it lacked any mention of God, the people forgave the omission because it was a special issue. The tools for this die were only used for this Canadian coin, but had been used for some coins from Australia and New Zealand.
The Voyageur Dollar was a coin of Canada struck for circulation from 1935 through 1986. Until 1968, the coin was composed of 80% silver. A smaller, nickel version for general circulation was struck from 1968 through 1986. In 1987, the coin was replaced by the loonie.
Crowned and robed bust of George V facing left. The legend is an abbreviated translation of “George V, King and Emperor, 25th year of reign".
GEORGIVS V REX IMPERATOR ANNO REGNI XXV
