OTTAWA, ON, Feb. 2, 2022 — Stories of outstanding achievement often find their way on Royal Canadian Mint coins. To mark the 175th anniversary of the birth of famed inventor Alexander Graham Bell, the Mint is dedicating its 2022 Proof Silver Dollar to his legacy of innovation and life-long commitment to science.

Born in Scotland, Bell settled with his family in Brantford, Ontario, where he developed a passion for problem-solving early, which sparked his interest in science. After inventing the telephone in 1876, he later built an estate near Baddeck on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. There, he collaborated on more innovations, such as the Silver Dart, Canada’s first powered airplane, and futuristic hydrofoil marine craft that blazed the waters of Bras D’Or Lake.

This year’s Proof Silver Dollar features a word-art profile of Bell speaking into his breakthrough invention that forever changed global communications. The creative assortment of words that describe aspects of his personal life and character, as well as his many innovations, create a revealing portrait of one of the world’s greatest inventors. This exceptional coin, along with the 2022 Fine Silver Proof Set featuring the exact artistic rendition of Bell, can be ordered from the Mint today.

The Royal Canadian Mint is the Crown corporation responsible for minting and distributing Canada’s circulation coins. The Mint is one of the largest and most versatile mints globally, offering a wide range of specialized, high-quality coinage products and related services internationally.
