Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Sailing through Canada’s waters and into history, tall ships have a certain mystique to them that harkens back to an era in Canada’s maritime history—one that was spurred by discovery, exploration, trade and achievement. This magnificent gold coin commemorates the 1791-1795 expedition of HMS Discovery, which extensively explored the area that would become known as Canada’s west coast. Commemorates the 225th anniversary of HMS Discovery’s 1791-1795 expedition, which produced an extensive survey of what is known today as Canada’s west coast.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Neil Hamelin features a stern view of HMS Discovery during the famous 1791-1795 expedition in the Pacific. With the wind spilling from her topsails, the threemasted ship is a majestic sight as she sails along the rugged, tree-lined coast of present-day British Columbia. The upper portion of the ship’s rudder and her stern chasers are evident above the water, while the eye sweeps up past the captain’s cabin and stern decorations to the large Red Ensign of the British Royal Navy flapping in the wind. A glimpse of the starboard side reveals more of the wooden barque’s distinctive appearance and her rigging details, as recreated through meticulous engraving.

The coin’s artistic merit and the story it tells will appeal to all ages, from young sailors to old salts. An unforgettable addition to any collection featuring Canadian or naval themes, and a powerful keepsake for those with a passion for Canada’s maritime history.
