Canada 25-CENTS (KM1547) Type 2 Dogs
In 2013, the Royal Canadian Mint released two new quarter designs (each with two types) to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1913-1916 Canadian Arctic Expedition (CAE).
100th Anniversary of the Canadian Arctic Expedition Design:
This coin was designed by Canadian artist Bonnie Ross and draws on photography from the Canadian Arctic Expedition. The coin depicts a group of three men aboard a dogsled, the waiting dog team before them listening for the command to move on across the Arctic tundra. The skyline and horizon in the background are filled with a stylized image of a compass.
(Type 2 - no frosting on the three men, outer compass ring is frosted.)
