1991 (1816-) Canadian $1 Steamer Frontenac Launch 175th Anniv Proof Silver Dollar Coin

 

The 1991 Proof Dollar marks the 175th anniversary of the launching of the Steamer Frontenac, on the Bay of Quinte, Lake Ontario, in 1816.

This commemorative issue celebrates the first steamship to sail on the Great Lakes. Built by a partnership of Kingston merchants in 1815, the Frontenac established a regular passenger and freight route between Prescott and Burlington by 1817, thus becoming the first Canadian built steamship to operate on Lake Ontario.

 

Design

The coin design, by Ontario artist David Craig, depicts the Frontenac sailing on Lake Ontario. She holds the distinction of being the first Canadian built, paddle-driven steamship on any of the Great Lakes.
