"I've always been drawn to stories on the high seas, especially with benevolent spirits of nature watching over and guiding the adventurers. Greek mythology and high fantasy novels inspire many of my designs, and with the middle coin, I wanted to pay homage to the Age of Exploration and the unique wonder of sighting a new piece of land in the distance." Rebecca Yanovskaya: Artist

  • The ship that presumably brought Cabot to our shores was the Matthew (likely the English version of his wife's name, Mattea) An artist's rendition of the ship previously appeared on the 1949 silver dollar coin and on our 2019 fine silver tribute.
  • The disappearance of the 1845 Franklin Expedition sparked a series of search-and-rescue expeditions that continued for nearly 170 years. The wreck of HMS Erebus was located by Parks Canada in 2014, and HMS Terror was discovered two years later.
