History was made when King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited Canada in 1939, a moment commemorated on this fine silver collectable coin enhanced with antique colour. It was the first time a reigning monarch had ever traveled to North America, involving a grand, 29-day voyage across Canada from east to west and back again, travelling almost 14,000 kilometres by rail. The journey began in Quebec City, and moved through Montréal, Ottawa, Toronto, Port Arthur (Thunder Bay), Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, Vancouver, and Victoria, where the King and Queen where ferried and escorted by naval ships and air force. The return trip followed a more northerly route through Jasper and Edmonton. At Niagara Falls, the royal train made a detour to the United States before returning to Canada near Montreal. From there, it traveled through Quebec's Eastern Townships, up the St. Lawrence River to St. John and Charlottetown, and on to Halifax and Newfoundland, their final stop in the historic royal tour.
