This 14 karat gold collectable coin celebrates the 200th anniversary of the exploration of the Fraser river by its namesake, Simon Fraser. Charged with the task of opening up trade routes to the Pacific Ocean, Fraser set out from Fort George with 23 other men on May 28, 1808 an expedition his native guides said was madness. Fraser and his team risked their lives navigating treacherous rapids in birch bark canoes.
