History was made when King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited Canada in 1939. It was the first time a reigning monarch had ever travelled to North America. The royal tour was more than two years in the making; a grand, 29-day voyage across Canada from east to west and back again—almost 14,000 kilometres by rail.

- An exclusive collectible limited to 6,000 coins worldwide and expertly crafted in 99.99% fine silver—a unique gift celebrating a pivotal moment for Canada and its monarchy.
- Beautifully engraved with the added dimension and old-world craftsmanship of ultra-high relief (UHR). This exceptional technique is normally reserved for large medals and medallions, but has been applied to this coin to create an effigy that literally rises from the coin’s surface, like a sculpture.
- Each coin is struck four times using special tooling and blanks developed specifically for the demanding pressures of UHR and is meticulously crafted and polished by hand for a stunning result.
The reverse features ultra-high relief effigies of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

Royal Canadian Mint engravers reproduced archival photographs from the royal tour of 1939.
