My Canadian Silver #3 - 1 Dollar 1964

Back with another silver beauty from Canada, this time a commemorative 1 $ coin from 1964 minted for the 100th Anniversary of Charlottetown & Quebec Conferences:

The Charlottetown and Québec conferences of 1864 were pivotal meetings that brought together influential political leaders of British North America and laid the groundwork for Canadian Confederation on 1 July 1867 source and more info

Not surprisingly, on the front side we have a young Queen Elizabeth..

The back is quite interesting featuring
the French fleur-de-lis, the Irish shamrock, the Scottish thistle, and the English rose.

At 23.33 g of 0.800 silver, this is a chunky boy with lots of symbolisms and stories to tell!

Here's a size comparison with the other Canadian pieces I have shared. A 1965 dollar and a 1966 50 cent:
