- From a decade of great change in Canadian coinage. This double-dated 5 oz fine silver coin is a 70th anniversary tribute to Newfoundland’s status as a province of Canada and to a well-loved commemorative piece that is the legacy of Thomas Shingles, Master Engraver of the Royal Canadian Mint (1943-1965).
- As finely engraved as the original piece. With the exception of the double-date 1949-2019 and a high end proof finish, the reverse is identical to the original design by Thomas Shingles, who hand-carved the image in miniature on the master tooling.
- Features a historical effigy. Just like the 1949 silver dollar, this $1 coin’s obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget.
