KM 37. PCGS Graded MS-62. Key date dollar, mintage of only 18,780 pieces.This is scarcer rotated die variety.

The reverse first used in 1935, became the design used on Canadian silver dollars until 1966, showing a native aboriginal and a Voyageur paddling a birch bark canoe. The initials HB for Hudson’s Bay appear on a package at the front of the canoe, and they recall the important role played by the Hudson’s Bay Company in the development of the country. The tree-covered island represents the richness of Canada’s forests and brings to mind all of the products that can be derived from this natural resource. The lines of the aurora borealis symbolize the immensity of the territory. Emanuel Hahn (EH at left under the canoe) was the designer of the coin.
