THE ROYAL CANADIAN MINT’S LATEST COLLECTOR COIN OFFERING INCLUDES A FINE SILVER TRIBUTE TO GREAT INVENTOR ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL

OTTAWA, ON, Feb. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Stories of great achievement often find their way on Royal Canadian Mint coins and 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 at an early age, 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. It is there that 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.
