2016 Canadian $1 Transatlantic Cable 150th Anniv Proof Silver Dollar Coin

 

2016 Canadian Proof fine silver dollar commemorates the 150th anniversary of that transatlantic telegraph cable, which revolutionized communications while transforming Newfoundland into an international communication hub.

We live in an era in which instant global communication is at our fingertips; at any given time, we can monitor news events as they unfold, follow the rise and fall of commodity prices around the world or connect with friends and family across the globe. It’s hard to imagine distance as a barrier to the exchange of ideas; but until the mid-19th century, a message sent from New York to London could only be relayed as quickly as the ship it sailed on, and “breaking news” from afar could be several weeks old.

Telegraphy had sped up communication over land, yet oceans still stood as immense, silent barriers—that is, until the successful completion of a permanent transatlantic telegraph cable on
July 27, 1866. This watershed moment finally provided an enduring communication link between the Old World and the New, and made Newfoundland a vital gateway to a world that had suddenly become more accessible!
