Theme

The 175TH Anniversary of the Birth of Alexander Graham Bell commemorative one-dollar coin honours his contributions and achievements, including a record-setting hydrofoil and the first powered aircraft to fly in Canada. Both the HD-4 and the Silver Dart made history on Nova Scotia’s Bras d’Or Lake, which is represented by blue waves on the 25 coins contained in each Colourized Special Wrap Roll.

Special Features

  • A celebration of innovation! The year 2022 marks the 175TH anniversary of the birth of Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922), whose interests and ideas left an indelible mark on Canada’s history of innovation.
  • 25 colour-enhanced coins! Each Colourized Special Wrap Roll gives you 25 $1 tributes to Alexander Graham Bell, and every one of those coins is enhanced with selective colour.
  • Two scientific milestones! The $1 coin highlights Bell’s contributions to two scientific milestones achieved in Canada: the first powered aircraft to fly in Canada, the Silver Dart; and the HD-4 hydrofoil that set a new world record for marine speed.
  • Blue wave! Both the HD-4 and the Silver Dart made history on Nova Scotia’s Bras d’Or Lake. The Cape Breton locale that served as Bell’s setting for experimentation is represented by the blue waves on the colourized coin’s reverse.
  • Limited quantities! Only 17,000 rolls are available.
  • Uncirculated coins! These coins have never been circulated—they all have a newly minted quality.
