2019 (1949-) Canadian $1 70th Anniversary of Newfoundland Joining Canada - 5 oz Fine Silver Coin


This 70th anniversary tribute to Newfoundland's status as a province of Canada, double-dated 1949-2019, is much larger than the original. Pictured on the reverse is The Matthew, the ship historians believe John Cabot was sailing when he discovered Newfoundland. The detailed rendering of the ship is made more impressive by the fact that the original design was hand-carved in miniature—and directly into steel—by one of the most illustrious figures in our history: Thomas Shingles, Master Engraver of the Royal Canadian Mint (1943-1965). Below the ship reads the Latin inscription "FLOREAT TERRA NOVA", which means "May the New Found Land Flourish."

Own this 70th anniversary tribute to Newfoundland and to a well-loved coinage legacy!


Features

A BEAUTIFUL COMMEMORATIVE PIECE! Widely considered to be one of our most beautiful commemorative pieces, the 1949 silver dollar is re-imagined on a 5 oz pure silver coin.
DOUBLE DATED 1949-2019! Your 70th anniversary tribute to Newfoundland’s status as a province of Canada, double dated 1949-2019, is much larger than the original coin but every bit as detailed—a masterful work of art that is the lasting legacy of Thomas Shingles, Master Engraver of the Royal Canadian Mint (1943-1965).
LOOK BACK ON OUR PAST! Like pages from our history, a past commemoration is an opportunity to explore the heritage of the Royal Canadian Mint and thank all the people who contributed to its history, from engravers to the production floor.
AS FINELY ENGRAVED AS THE ORIGINAL PIECE! With the exception of the double-date 1949-2019, the reverse is identical to the original design by Thomas Shingles, who hand-carved the image in miniature.
FEATURES A HISTORICAL EFFIGY! Just like the 1949 silver dollar, this $1 coin’s obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget.
LIMITED MINTAGE! Only 1,000 coins will be made available worldwide.
INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
NO GST/HST!


Design

As it appeared on the 1949 silver dollar, the original reverse design by Thomas Shingles commemorates Newfoundland’s entry into Canadian Confederation on March 31, 1949. It represents The Matthew, the ship presumably sailed by explorer John Cabot when he reached the coast of Newfoundland in 1497. The image of the three-masted ship under full sail was based on a model and taken from a photograph. Beneath the water lies the Latin inscription “FLOREAT TERRA NOVA”—“May the New Found Land Flourish”. The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget.


Packaging

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded black clamshell with a black beauty box.
