2014 $15 Exploring Canada - The Arctic Expedition Fine Silver (No Tax)

As long as there have been people on Earth, there have been explorers-pioneering individuals with one eye trained on the horizon, eager to know what lies beyond, and always ready to break a new trail towards the future. But their adventure never ends, because every destination inspires another. Exploration-that irrepressible spirit of discovery-fuels the life and passion of individuals. It drives the evolution of their community, and ultimately shapes the future of their nation.

Canadian artist John Mantha has created a powerful design that captures the essence of early Arctic exploration-the perilous phase when a ship becomes trapped and potentially crushed by ice and the crew must unload its supplies and travel by foot. Much of their success was achieved through the assistance of the Arctic's indigenous Inuit who generously shared their knowledge of the land, providing food, clothing, and equipment, including sledges and dogs as shown in the foreground of the design.
