  • 1939 Canada Silver Dollar is made from .60 oz of .800 Fine Silver and commemorates the 1939 Royal Tour of Canada by their majesties King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (later known as the Queen Mother).
    The obverse has T. H. Paget’s portrait of King George VI facing left and the legend “GEORGIUS VI D:G:REX ET IND:IMP:” This inscription is in Latin and shortened but means: “George VI, by the grace of god, the King and Emperor of India.”
    The reverse shows the Centre Block, or main building for Canada’s Parliament. The reverse was designed by Emanuel Hahn. The motto “FIDE SVORVM REGNAT” is struck over the image and means “He Reigns by the Faith of his People.” The country of issue, date and denomination are located at the bottom of the reverse.
    This is a very popular Canadian Silver Coin because it was only minted the year of the Royal Tour, making it an interesting coin to add to any collection
