1950 SHORT WATER LINES (SWL) Canadian $1 Voyageur Silver Dollar Coin ICCS Graded MS-60

 

One Dollar - 80% Silver - George VI (1937 - 1952)

Beginning in 1945, the Royal Canadian Mint was able to achieve a more brilliant appearance to their silver dollar strikes. This was due to the use of chromium-plated coinage dies. For previous issues unplated dies with a rougher surface had been used.

At each end of the canoe are four shallow water lines. In the process of polishing or repolishing the dies, parts of these lines tended to disappear, creating differences within a given year's coinage:

Normal (FWL) = Four full water lines at right of canoe 
Arnprior (ARN) = 2 1/2 water lines at right of canoe
Short Water Lines (SWL) = 3 or 4 short water lines at right of canoe

 

Obverse

Coin depicts the design of King George VI with the Latin inscription:
GEORGIVS VI D:G:REX ET IND:IMP: meaning "George VI, by the grace of God, the King and Emperor of India."
 

Reverse

Features a modern design by sculptor Emanuel Hahn, showing an Indian and a voyageur, a travelling agent for a fur company, paddling a canoe by an islet on which therer are two wind-swept trees. In the canoe are bundles of goods; the bundle at the right has HB, representing the Hudson's Bay Company. The vertical lines in the background represet the northern lights. 


Note: The photo of this item is the actual coin in ICCS graded envelope.
