The Canoe

A shiny silver 20 dollars showing the iconic image. The figure in the Canoe is a young boy, the reflection a voyageur.

The Canoe
“The boy breaks from paddling to dip his hand in the water… and touches the past – the reflection reveals an early native paddler (or voyageur) in a traditional birch-bark canoe as it also appears on the early silver dollar of 1935.”
