1964 Charlottetown Commemorative

1964 Charlottetown Commemorative

We do hereby proclaim, direct and determine that the design of the proposed new silver dollar shall be as hereinafter set out: The design of the reverse impression to depict, conjoined within a circle, the French Fleur-de-lis, the Irish Shamrock, the Scottish Thistle and the English Rose surrounded by the names "CHARLOTTETOWN" and "QUEBEC"; the whole enclosed by the words "CANADA" above, "DOLLAR" below and the figures "1864" at the left and "1964" at the right, together with a graining upon the edge of the coin.

In 1962, The Honourable Donald M. Fleming, Minister of Finance, announced that the Government would hold a competition to secure a new design for a Canadian silver dollar. An invitation was extended to artists and sculptors in Canada to submit designs for such a new coin, which is to be issued in 1964, to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the 1864 Conferences of the Fathers of Confederation which led up to the Confederation of Canada in 1867.

The Board of Judges, who were appointed to choose a reverse design for a dollar coin to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the 1864 Conferences of the Fathers of Confederation, selected the design submitted by Mr. Dinko Vodanovic of Montreal from amongst some 168 others.

Mr. Vodanovic was presented with the first prize of $1,000.00 by the Honourable George C. Nowlan who was then Minister of Finance.
