The design on the reverse of the constitution dollar is based on the painting The Fathers of Confederation by Robert Harris. That painting was destroyed in 1916 due to the fire, but the artist Rex Woods created a copy of it in 1968 to replace it, and made modifications, including the addition of three people on it.
