1953 marked the first Canadian dollar featuring the bust of Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse depicts a pair of traders in a canoe with the Northern Lights in the background. This Silver voyager coin contains .600 of an ounce of Silver! When the first issue of Elizabeth appeared in 1953, it was quickly noticed that her shoulder appeared to be bare. It was not actually bare as there was a faint shoulder fold present by engraved so shallow that it was normally not visible on most coins. This appearance was considered inappropriate, so new dies were made with the shoulder fold of cloth deeper into the die that it was was obviously present, and at the same time some of the letter forms were changed slightly. This resulted in two varieties of the 1953 silver dollars
