Product Description

Canada: 2019 $1 Heritage of the Royal Canadian Mint: The Matthew 1 oz. Pure Silver Piedfort

Design: 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). It features a detailed rendering of the Matthew, the ship historians believe John Cabot was sailing when he reached the coast of Newfoundland in 1497. The image of the three-masted ship under full sail was originally based on a model and taken from a photograph provided by Ernest Maunder of St. John’s, Newfoundland. 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. H. Paget.
