The quarters celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the first official Canadian Arctic expedition (1913-1918)

Nine-year-old Emily Wang, a Grade 4 student at Torquay elementary, holds up the two new quarters recently unveiled by the Royal Canadian Mint at the Nellie McClung library on Cedar Hill Road.

The quarters celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the first official Canadian Arctic expedition (1913-1918) and life in the Canadian North. The expedition departed from Esquimalt harbour in June 1913.

The mint is entering 25 million of the quarters into circulation.
