Join us in celebrating Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) and its 350 years of history, which are beautifully embodied on this Voyageur dollar-inspired coin.

Incorporated in 1670, Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) is Canada’s oldest company. Partnerships with First Nations, Inuit and Métis led to its success during the fur trade era. And as Canada began to take shape, HBC evolved along with it: its commercial pursuits were a crucial part of Canada’s earliest industries and development; its trading posts became Canada’s cities and towns; and its fur-trading empire evolved into the modern retail giant of today.

Special features:
  • AFFORDABLE SILVER COINS! You get ¼ oz. of 99.99% pure silver for $24.95, struck from some of the purest silver in the world.
  • COIN #2 IN A SERIES THAT REPRESENTS CANADA IN 2020: With meaningful themes that enrich our knowledge and appreciation of our country, this four-coin series marks important subjects that are the fabric of Canada. Coin #2 is inspired by the Voyageur dollar and reflects HBC’s special place in the history of exploration and trade in Canada.
  • ALSO AVALABLE AS A 4-COIN SUBSCRIPTION! Reserve all four issues and enjoy the convenience of paying only as each coin is shipped to you.
  • A PATRIOTIC LOOK: The curve text (“CANADA”), date (“2020”) and maple leaves are the unifying features of this series – you’ll find them on all four coins in this series.
  • SPECIAL PACKAGING! Your coin comes in a full-colour custom folder. The bespoke capsule for each coin allows you to pop it out of the packaging, to get a close up view of the coin.

Design:
The reverse was inspired by the Voyageur dollar introduced in 1935 and designed by Emanuel Hahn. The engraved image features six explorers paddling a canoe in rough waters after exchanging goods at the Hudson's Bay Company trading post, which appears behind the pine trees in the distance. The reverse also includes the word "CANADA" near the curved rim, while the face value "5 DOLLARS" and the year "2020" are inscribed below. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

"If you're going to collect any coins this year, these are the ones to buy! HBC and the Royal Canadian Mint have a longstanding history: HBC was prominently featured on our classic Voyageur dollar, which we have re-created here to mark HBC's special anniversary." Erica Maga, Product Manager, Royal Canadian Mint

Did you know…
  • Signed by King Charles II on May 2, 1670, the Royal Charter is preserved at HBC's corporate headquarters in Toronto. It granted exclusive trading rights to "the Governor and Company of Adventurers of England trading into Hudson Bay."
  • Until 1970, the Royal Charter included a clause requiring HBC to pay the British Crown a periodic rent of "two Elks and two Black beavers." The Rent Ceremony has only occurred four times since 1670: in 1927, 1939, 1959 and 1970.
  • If you look closely at a Voyageur dollar, you'll spot the initials "HBC" on one of the bundles tucked inside the canoe.

Packaging:
Your coin comes in a full-colour custom folder that will catch everyone's attention.
