SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Mystery meets history: Franklin’s lost expedition is one of history’s great mysteries but we’re getting closer to solving it! This coin honours the memory of the ill-fated expedition and celebrates the achievements of those who discovered Franklin’s lost ships in Canada’s northern waters.
  • Corrugated edges give this coin a jagged outline to resemble the ice that trapped Franklin’s two ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror (seen on this coin).
  • Art and storytelling: Tragedy unfolds on the coin’s reverse, where the ship’s positioning and the surrounding ice convey a feeling of imminent danger.
