Description

It was 125 years ago, in 1898, that the frenzied activity of the Klondike Gold Rush resulted in the creation of Yukon – a historic moment that is commemorated on this 99.99% pure silver coin from the Royal Canadian Mint.

Yukon is truly one of Canada’s most extraordinary places. Here, rivers cut through dense forests, wildlife giants roam, and mountain peaks stretch so high, they seem to touch the midnight sun. It is the ancestral home of many dynamic First Nations who have lived in synch with nature’s cyclical rhythm since time immemorial, and who are revitalizing the ways and knowledge of the past that guide the way forward.

Breathtaking flora and fauna, a complex history, vibrant cultures – all of these contribute to the intricate beauty of Yukon, a territory that continues to proudly move to the beat of its own drum.

An important milestone. This year (2023) marks the 125th anniversary of the Yukon Territory Act, 1898, which created Yukon as a separate territory at the height of the Klondike Gold Rush. It is an important historic event, an event that shaped the Canada you know today!
