2015 $200 Great Canadian Explorers: Henry Hudson Gold (No Tax)

Famous for his exploration of Hudson Bay and for his mysterious disappearance following the mutiny of his crew, Henry Hudson ranks among the most esteemed and intriguing European explorers of the land now known as Canada. Hudson is the subject of the fourth release in the Royal Canadian Mint's popular Great Canadian Explorers series.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Laurie McGaw depicts Henry Hudson on his final Arctic voyage. The image centres on a full-length portrait of Hudson, viewed from the right and gazing to the right side of the coin through a spyglass. Hudson wears a heavy coat trimmed in fur, a fur hat, and long leather boots. On the right side of the image is a stylized map of Hudson Bay, and Hudson's spyglass points directly to the centre of the Bay. Below the map, Hudson's ship, Discovery, rests at anchor in the Bay. A party of crewmen row toward land in a small rowboat. On the left side of the image is an Elizabethan-era directional wind rose.
