Description

Mapped by Canadian explorers such as those of the 1913 Canadian Arctic Expedition, the lands, waterways, and continental shelves extending from the Northwest Passage to the nearer North are sovereign Canadian territories that play an important role in the heritage of Canada’s people, geography, and environment. Mintage is limited to 750 coins. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

This coin is certified to be 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 101.8 millimeters and a metal weight of 1000 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist W. David Ward presents a highly detailed portrait of the north shore of Baffin Island, overlooking Lancaster Sound, at the mouth of the Northwest Passage—a region that evokes the Arctic’s various landscape elements: icebergs, glaciers, mountains, ice plains, and frozen waters. Amid the semi-frozen sea water of Lancaster Sound, dotted with masses of ice, large icebergs float majestically under a cloud-filled sky. In the distance, on both sides of the Sound, jagged glacier-topped mountains rise against the horizon. The reverse features the text “CANADA”. The obverse features the date “2013”, the face value of “250 DOLLARS” and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
