2014 $15 Exploring Canada - The Voyageurs 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 an energizing design of five men shooting the rapids aboard a birch bark canoe that typified the fur trade. The Native oarsman at the helm represents the inter-cultural alliances that were critical to the fur trade's success, and the diverse manner of dress among the men illustrates the extent to which The Voyageurs adopted Native ways of life. The treacherous waterway with its rocky outcrops is characteristic of the dangerous terrain The Voyageurs had to navigate; just one of many perils that were ever-present in the wilderness.
