In 1913, an international crew of scientists, sailors, guides and crewmen—called the Canadian Arctic Expedition (CAE)—set sail on a remarkable voyage of discovery in Canada's High Arctic. During the five years that followed, their work would touch unprecedented facets of Canada's far-flung northern reaches, including: previously unknown lands and islands, as well as thousands of photographs, artifacts and specimens that offered Canadians a glimpse of life in the Arctic.

Your coin celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Arctic Expedition. Crafted in fine silver (99.99% pure) with a brilliant finish. Limited to 20,000 coins worldwide. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:
Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Bonnie Ross and draws on photography from the Canadian Arctic Expedition. Your coin depicts a group of three men aboard a dogsled, the waiting dog team before them listening for the command to move on across the Arctic tundra. The skyline and horizon behind this portrait are filled with a stylized image of a compass.
