2015 $15 Exploring Canada - Canadian Pacific Railway (TAX Exempt)

The story of Canada is forever being written by visionary individuals who have one eye trained on the horizon and are always ready to break a new trail towards the future. Confederation in 1867 sparked dreams of a transcontinental railway. While laying track across a flat and predictable landscape is already a mammoth task, Canada's railway workers were faced with the incomprehensible distance of more than 5,500 km and unimaginable challenges. Surveyors tried to follow the paths of early explorers, but the railway pushed them into uncharted territory-over perilous swamps, across thousands of waterways and endless prairies; culminating with the feat of tunneling through mountains and constructing bridges over cavernous passes.

Canadian artist John Mantha has created a dynamic design that salutes the 30,000 workers who completed Canada's transcontinental railway with a scene that best embodies the gruelling and dangerous nature of this gargantuan project-laying track through the mountains. Two "navvies" are hard at work driving a spike while a third worker in the background hauls gravel to fill the gap between railway ties.
