The lure of the massive canoes transcended class and social status as hundreds of men climbed aboard to head into the unknown for months, even years. Paddling up to 90 strokes per minute, they traveled thousands of kilometers, circumventing perilous rapids by loading each man with 200 lbs (90 Kg) of cargo to carry across countless portages. Bear fat, corn, and pemmican were their staples and they had little more than the trees to shield them from the elements and the unrelenting flies. Known as coureurs de bois or voyageurs, the 2005 22-Karat Gold Coin captures the essence of their adventurous lives, the spirit of those brave men who helped to shape a nation.Travel back to this magical, and defining time, in Canadian history!
