It is shown that it is possible to introduce a universal propagator for a general Hamiltonian appropriate to a single affine degree of freedom. This universal propagator is a single function, independent of any particular choice of fiducial vector, which, nonetheless, propagates the coherent state Hubert space representatives correctly. Furthermore, the universal propagator for several examples is explicitly constructed.
