The Canadian Arctic Expedition was an significant event in the exploration of the Canadian Arctic, helping to map the extent of Canada's Arctic territory, preserve Canada's sovereignty in the region, and uncover important knowledge about the people, flora, fauna, and geology of the region. The year 2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the historic Canadian Arctic Expedition.

This Brilliant Silver Dollar is certified to be 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 36.07 millimetres and a weight of 23.17 grams. Designed by Canadian artist Bonnie Ross, the reverse image portrays several significant elements from the Canadian Arctic Expedition.

In the foreground, the image draws on the abundant photography from the Expedition to present a portrait of three explorers standing beside a dogsleigh packed with gear. Harnessed to the sled, the waiting dog team watches and listens for the command to plunge deeper into the Arctic tundra.

On the distant horizon, a stylized image of a compass pointed 10 degrees east of true North fills the background. The reverse features the words 'CANADA DOLLAR' and the dates '1913-2013' to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Arctic Expedition. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
