This elegant Brilliant Uncirculated Silver Dollar commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the Canadian Arctic Expedition. 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 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. The obverse shows Susanna Blunt's version of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This Brilliant Uncirculated coin is sure to be popular with collectors. It comes packaged in the original box of issue. The included numbered certificate of authenticity tells the history of the Canadian Arctic Expedition and the effect it had on Canada.
