Widely considered to be one of our most beautiful commemorative pieces, the 1949 silver dollar is re-imagined as a brilliant uncirculated, pure silver piedfort coin. Own this piedfort tribute to those who helped forge a legacy! LOOK BACK ON OUR PAST! Like pages from our history, a past commemoration is an opportunity to explore the heritage of the Royal Canadian Mint and thank all the people who contributed to its history, from engravers to the production floor. HIGHLIGHTS A DECADE OF CHANGE IN CANADIAN COINAGE! A piedfort coin is twice the thickness of a typical coin-that means double the amount of 99.99% pure silver. This piece also has a brilliant uncirculated finish, much like the original. AS FINELY ENGRAVED AS THE ORIGINAL PIECE! With the exception of an updated date (2019), the reverse is identical to the original design by Thomas Shingles, who hand-carved the image in miniature. FEATURES A HISTORICAL EFFIGY! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Except for the updated date “2019”, your coin is a reproduction of Thomas Shingles’ original design for a commemorative silver dollar issued in 1949, to mark Newfoundland’s entry into Canadian Confederation (March 31, 1949). Beneath the water lies the Latin inscription “FLOREAT TERRA NOVA” (“May the New Found Land Flourish”). The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box. This item is in the category “Coins & Paper Money\Coins: Canada\Commemorative”.
