1939 Canadian Silver Dollar
Canada’s second commemorative coin was when the reverse of the 1939 silver dollar was used to mark the visit of George VI and Queen Elizabeth to Canada.
The design consists of the centre block of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa and the Latin phrase “FIDE SVORVM REGNAT” meaning “He reigns by the faith of his people”
The coins were issued through the Bank of Canada and also available through the Post Office as well.
The mintage proved to be larger than public demand and between 1939 and 1945, 158,084 pieces were returned to the mint and melted.
