Only a coin as grand as this could ever capture the spirit of exploration that lured thousands of Europeans into the wilderness for fur. Traveling to the Great Lakes from Montreal was a grueling voyage. Voyageurs paddled 50 strokes a minute, and carried hundreds of kilograms across perilous portages. Their endurance, strength and courage were unimaginable, but the lure of money and adventure was stronger still. By the start of the 18th century, 25% of Montreal’s men were voyageurs—regardless of class or social status. To this day, riding untamed waters remains a great all-Canadian thrill. Join the adventure, and experience life as a voyageur with this superlative coin!

RCM engraver Matt Bowen has created this immersive design of voyageurs paddling a canoe in the upper Ottawa River. They have just cleared a treacherous cascade, the force of the current almost launching the canoe from the coin’s ultra-high relief. Water churns beneath their paddles as the voyageurs move in unison, their quick and coordinated strokes ensuring they pass through the rapids intact. Deeply carved boulders give rise to formidable riverbanks where the white water begins. In the distance, the river disappears around a bend, its shores choked with coniferous trees that greatly enhance the sense of perspective and the vastness of the landscape.
