Overview
Additional Info

The silver jubilee of King George V in 1935 was a time of great sadness for the British monarchy, as the King fell gravely ill and passed away in January 1936. His son Edward VIII ascended to the throne, but abdicated later that year, leaving his brother George VI to take the throne. These shifts in leadership meant that mints across the British Empire had to make ongoing changes to coinage in collaboration with the Royal Mint in London. As matters at Windsor Castle calmed in 1938, the Government of Canada decided to celebrate His Majesty's planned royal visit in 1939—the first of its kind on Canadian soil—with a commemorative silver dollar. This coin was a great success, and has since become a cherished part of Canadian history.
