The 1935 silver dollar, as Canada's first commemorative coin and first regular issue one dollar coin holds a special place in the hearts of many collectors. The voyageur reverse was in use from 1935 til 1987 and might just be the most iconic design of any Canadian coin. The designer's initials can be seen by the waterline as EH, standing for Emanuel Hahn. Emanuel Hahn was a great Canadian sculptor with many of his works standing in Toronto today, he also took an interest in coin design and is responsible for some of the most beloved designs in our hobby. Not only did he design the beloved voyageur, but he is also responsible for the 1939 Royal visit commemorative dollar as well as the bluenose dimes and caribou quarters still seen in circulation today.

I present to my beloved CCF the actual 1935 dollar given to Emanuel Hahn as a token of appreciation for his work..this coin now holds a very special place in my collection and I am most thankful to be its new caretaker.

Beautiful!! Do you have any idea how many times this coin exchanged hands since its mintage until you received it?

@punman very few times.. The coin didn't leave the Hahn family until the 1960s when it was consigned to the new Netherlands coin company auction. It was either consigned by his wife or right after her death, I can't remember which. The Norwebs bought the coin from the new Netherlands sale and it resided in their collection until the collection was auctioned by Stack's in 1996. It was won from the Stack's sale by the family who built the cornerstone collection and the cornerstone collection was then sold in 2019. When the cornerstone collection was sold, a private collector who deals occasionally purchased it as it was very very cool but did not fit his core collection.. I was lucky enough to get into contact with him and purchase it. So it went from Hahn to Hahn's wife, then to the Norwebs, then to the Rogos(cornerstone), then to the private collector and then myself...so about 6 people have owned it since 1935 if you consider Hahn's wife a separate owner and discount the possibility it may have belonged to one of his children briefly before being consigned to the new Netherlands sale.
