2014 Canada $15 Exploring Canada - The West Coast Exploration Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt)

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 inspiring design that honours the many seaborne expeditions that explored the West Coast during the 18th century with a special tribute to George Vancouver (1757-1798). It was Vancouver's exhaustive surveys of 1792-1794 that finally provided the information landlocked explorers needed to reach the Pacific Ocean through the mountains. The Aboriginal man in the design acknowledges the many First Nations communities that Vancouver met, and who provided critical information on the land.
