CANADIAN COINS & CURRENCY


NewALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL HONORED ON 2022 CANADIAN DOLLARS

Canada 1 Dollar 2022 175th ANNIVERSARY OF BIRTH OF ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELLCanada issued both colored and uncolored versions of their 20220 circulating 1 Dollar coin commemorating the 175th anniversary of the birth of inventor Alexander Graham Bell.  Though Bell is most remembered for his invention of the telephone, he also did groundbreaking work in optical telecommunications, hydrofoils, and aeronautics.  His work with hydrofoils and aeronautics were done in his later years in Canada. This is reflected in the design of the coins, which feature a portrait of Bell in his later years, his signature, schematic illustrations of the Silver Dart - the first aircraft to achieve controlled powered flight in Canada in 1909, and his HD-4 hydrofoil, which in 1919 set world marine speed record of 70.86 miles per hour (114.04 kph), a record which stood for ten years.  Both events took place at Nova Scotia’s Bras d’Or Lake.  The lake is represented by wave lines on the uncolored con and blue on the colored version.  Queen Elizabeth is on the obverse

NewCANADA REMEMBERS THE SUMMIT HOCKEY SERIES

Canada 2 Dollars 2022 50th Anniversary of Summit Series ice hockey victoryCanada issued both color and non-colored circulating bi-metallic 2 Dollar coins in 2022 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their victory in the Summit Series ice hockey games against the Soviet Union held in September 1972.  Both nations considered themselves to be the best in the world.  The Summit Series was set to prove it. It was a series of eight games, the first four held in Canada and the last four in the Soviet Union. This was during the Cold War.  Both fans and players had intense feelings of nationalism.  Canada went into the series confident they would sweep the series, but it was not to be.  The Soviets were a lot better than they expected.  Going into the final game of the series the games were evenly split, with three wins and a tie.  The Soviets led in the number of goals scored.  An estimated 15 out of 22 million Canadians tuned into the final game.  It was a tense and dramatic game, with Team Canada overcoming a two-goal Soviet lead after two periods. Canada scored the final game winning goal with just 34 seconds left to play.  The coin depicts two Team Canada players in their distinctive red and white uniforms.  The coaches’ initials and the players’ jersey numbers surround the inner core.   The Royal Canadian Mint pledged that the net proceeds from the sale of the coins will be donated to the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

Canada portrayed heroes of the War of 1812 on circulating 25 cent coins. The war, between Great Britain and the United States, helped define Canadian nationhood and prevented the United States from annexing Canada.  Each coin was issued in two versions: one with a red maple leaf with the date 1812 in white script.  The other features the portrait with a frosted finish and an uncolored maple leaf.  The 2012 issues honored Shawnee Chief Tecumseh and Major General Sir Isaac Brock. Tecumseh led a confederation of Indian tribes that fought the United States and tried to form an Indian nation under British protection.  After he was killed in battle by the Americans in 1813 his confederation fell apart. The British abandoned their Indian allies in the peace conference that ended the war.  The Americans took possession of the territory and drove the Indians onto reservations or further west.  Tecumseh is portrayed wearing a British Indian peace medal bearing the portrait of George III.  Sir Isaac Brock successfully defeated attempts by the United States to invade Canada.  He and Tecumseh joined forces to defeat a larger American army at Fort Detroit in 1812.   The 2013 issues depicts Lieutenant Colonel Charles-Michel de Salaberry and Laura Secord.  During the War of 1812 de Salaberry's Voltigeurs Canadiens militia helped protect Montreal from the United States.   During Battle of Ch‚teauguay in October 1813 his force of 1700 turned back an American force of some 3000 troops.  In 1813 Laura Secord walked 20 miles out of American occupied territory to warn British forces of an impending attack.    Queen Elizabeth is on the obverse of all the coins.

CANADA 1964 CHARLOTTETOWN SILVER DOLLAR 

Canada 1964 silver dollar commemorating 100th anniversary of Charlottetown and Qubec conferencesCanada young head silver dollarCanada issued a circulating commemorative silver dollar in 1964 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Charlottetown and Quebec Conferences.  The conferences laid the groundwork for the establishment of the Dominion of Canada in 1867. The Charlottetown Conference was held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island in September 1864. Initially the conference was to discuss a union of the Maritime colonies, but was expanded to include the Province of Canada as well.  Britain encouraged the union, hoping the colonies would become less dependent on the Crown and provide for greater economic and military power for the region in light of the American Civil War.   A circus came to Charlottetown the same week, the first one to visit in over 20 years. Folks were much more interested in the circus than politics.  Workers left their jobs and folks from all over the island came into town which made accommodations difficult for the delegates.  A second conference was held in Quebec the following month.  The Quebec Conference created 72 Resolutions which laid the foundation for unifying the colonies.  The resolutions covered a wide range of issues, from governmental powers to building railroads.   The coin depicts young Queen Elizabeth on the obverse.  The reverse features an emblem incorporating the French fleur-de-lis, the Irish shamrock, the Scottish thistle, and the English rose representing the main nationalities that settled Canada.   Around it is the legend "CHARLOTTETOWN • QUEBEC", the dates "1864" and "1964".  The 36mm coin is struck in .800 fine silver and contains .6  troy ounces of silver.

WORLD WAR II CANADIAN MEAT RATION TOKEN

Canada World War II meat ration tokenMeat was rationed in Canada during World War II.  Families received a ration booklet which allowed them to purchase a limited quantity of rationed goods, including tea, coffee, sugar, butter, booze and meat each week.  Each weekly meat ration coupon was good for 2 pounds of meat.  The problem was that many did not have refrigeration at home, so they would either forfeit the whole coupon for a lesser amount of meat, or buy their full amount and risk it going bad before it could be used.  In 1945 the Canadian government finally wised up and issued meat ration tokens that were good for a lesser quantity of meat. Each token was worth 1/8 of a meat ration coupon (1/4 pound of meat), so if someone bought less than their full ration of meat the tokens could be given out to be used later.  If one bought half their weekly ration of meat, they would receive four tokens for later use.  The 22mm blue token is struck on a heavy blue cardboard with a center hole. Both sides have the same design with the words "CANADA - RATION MEAT - VIANDE" and two maple leaves.

Newfoundland silver 5 Cents 1941-1945Though Canada switched from a silver 5 Cent to a nickel 5 Cent nickel in 1922, due to a strong conservative element, Newfoundland continued to use the small silver 5 cent coin.  The 15.5mm coin was struck in .925 silver until 1943, and in .800 fine silver from 1944 until 1947.   Starting in 1940 the coins were struck at the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa.  Its "C" mintmark is at the bottom on the reverse.  Going into World War II Newfoundland was suffering severely from the Great Depression and did not have a functioning parliament.  The war temporarily brought prosperity due to the demand for its fishery and agricultural products and the establishment of a major aircraft refueling base at Gander.  Some 20,000 fighters and bombers stopped at Gander on their way to Europe during the war, which significantly increased the demand for small change and the production of Newfoundland silver 5 cent coins.
