2014 $15 Exploring Canada - The Vikings 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.

The reverse design by Canadian artist John Mantha shows an imposing Viking ship coming ashore on the rocky coast of Vinland ("the land of wine", the name given by the Vikings to the lush, abundant land far across the Atlantic). The captain points the way as he directs his oarsmen seated behind a row of shields.
