1 OUNCE PURE GOLD! Your coin has no GST/HST!


Designed by Canadian artist Neil Hamelin, your coin features a stern view of HMS Discovery during the famous 1791-1795 expedition in the Pacific. With the wind spilling from her topsails, the three-masted 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.


Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
