Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This striking new gold coin from the Royal Canadian Mint commemorates more than 400 years of Canadian exploration, and is the fourth coin in the popular Great Canadian Explorers series. This particular coin depicts famed explorer Henry Hudson, who navigated and charted both the Hudson Strait and Hudson Bay in 1610. Famous for his exploratory endeavours, 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.

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.

This coin is struck in the Mint's highest-quality proof finish into a half an ounce of 99.99% pure gold. It has a charming diameter of 29mm, and text on the reverse that reads "CANADA", "200 DOLLARS", and the year "2015". This beautiful gold coin is an original work of art, in addition to being a spectacular collector's item with a limited mintage of only 2,000 coins.

As a pure gold coin from the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is exempt from GST or HST.
