2016 $200 Great Canadian Explorers - Pierre Gaultier De La Verendrye Pure Gold Coin (TAX Exempt) 148998

From 1732 to 1743, Pierre Gaultier de Varennes et de La Verendrye (1685-1749) brought the era of exploration beyond the Great Lakes region, allowing New France to expand its western frontier-and its fur trade-to present-day Manitoba. While the exploration of the Saskatchewan and Assiniboine Rivers went largely unheralded in his time, La Verendrye has since emerged as a figure who embodies the voyageur spirit, and is truly one of the great explorers in Canadian history.
