2016 Canada Special Edition Silver Dollar Proof Set - 150th Anniversary of the Transatlantic Cable


On July 27, 1866, a new era of global communication began as S.S. Great Eastern steamed into Heart's Content, Newfoundland to complete a link that could relay messages quickly between the Old World and the New. This fine silver proof dollar commemorates the 150th anniversary of that transatlantic telegraph cable, which revolutionized communications while transforming Newfoundland into an international hub.

The Special Edition Silver Dollar features a three-quarter port-side view of S.S. Great Eastern anchored offshore in the natural harbour of Heart's Content, N.L. Colour engraving recreates the appearance of this great iron steamer, whose impressive size easily dwarfs the local gaff-rigged fishing boat (known as a Jack Boat) that sits off her port bow.




Proof dollar set comes in an elegant genuine leather book-style packaging that complements your beautiful coins.
