100th Anniversary of the Canadian Arctic Expedition - Pure Silver Proof Set (2013)
In 1913, an international crew of scientists, sailors, guides, and crewmen—called the Canadian Arctic Expedition's (CAE)—set sail on a remarkable voyage of discovery in Canada's High Arctic. During the five years that followed, their work would touch unprecedented facets of Canada's far-flung northern reaches, including: previously unknown lands and islands, and thousands of photographs, artifacts, and specimens that offered Canadians a glimpse of life in the Arctic. Their discoveries not only better defined Canada's northern boundaries, but fundamentally contributed to Canada's scientific, social, and cultural knowledge of the Arctic and the people who lived there. This redefined the region in the Canadian imagination, and helped establish the special place it maintains in national life today.
