Description

1999 Canadian $1 International Year of Older Persons Proof Silver Dollar Coin (Limited Edition) 

The United Nations declared this year as the International Year of Older Persons to increase awareness of the world's aging population and a shift in perceptions and policies. Signed in October 1999, the resolution calls for solidarity, respect, and mutual exchange between generations. As a founding UN member-state, Canada has generated a domestic initiative to create "A Society for All Ages."

The 1999 silver dollar is the first numismatic design to be inspired by a commemorative stamp. Developed by two Canadian talents, artist Shelagh Armstrong-Hodgson and designer Paul Hodgson, the reverse of the coin portrays a man and a woman, in their golden years, travelling the path of life. The light, airy lines of the trees evoke a sense of movement - the new vitality of this colourful period of life. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Dora de Pedery-Hunt.
