Product Overview
This 2015 $5 pure silver coin is part of the Royal Canadian Mint series based on historical Canadian bank notes. Until the late 1930s, most banknotes circulating in Canada in denominations of $5 and higher were issued by the chartered banks, and this was the primary paper money of Canada. As these banknotes essentially provided the banks with an interest-free loan and a source of funding, they actively competed to get their notes into circulation, often by including beautiful artwork and interesting vignettes.  

The design on this coin is an engraved reproduction of the vignette which appeared on the $5 note issued by the Barclays Bank (Canada) in 1929. It features a female allegorical figure gazing at a globe with a winged disc in her hand—symbolic of the bank's expansion into Canada at the time. The word "Canada" and the date "2015" are located below vignette, and the denomination "5 dollars" is within the scrollwork above the vignette. The coin is double-struck with the Royal Canadian Mint's highest quality proof finish of .9999 fine silver.
