The Royal Canadian Mint issued the Canadian silver dollar as a way to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King George, the 5th. It was designed by Emanuel Hahn and composed of 80% silver. The coin showed the King on the front and a canoe with voyageur on the reverse. This led to it being called Voyageur dollar.
