Description

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, and thousands of photographs, artifacts and specimens that offered Canadians a glimpse of life in the Arctic. Their discoveries not only better defined Canada's northern boundaries, but fundamentally contributed to Canada's scientific, social and cultural knowledge of the Arctic and the people who lived there. This redefined the region in the Canadian imagination, and helped establish the special place it maintains in national life today.

This is the 54th issue of our proof fine silver dollar coins! Your coin celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Arctic Expedition of 1913–1918. Crafted in fine silver (99.99% pure) with a proof coin finish. Limited to 40,000 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.
