John Ross was born on June 24th 1777 and was only nine years of age when he joined the Royal Navy where he saw military action during the Napoleonic Wars between 1803 and 1815.  His Arctic career consisted of two naval expeditions in search of the Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean and one unsuccessful attempt to find the lost explorer Sir John Franklin.  John Ross is recognized as the leader of the first expedition which determined the location of the Earth’s Magnetic North Pole and was knighted in 1834 and elevated to the rank of Rear Admiral in 1851.

The design on the coin shows an impression of the Earth illustrating both the North and the South Poles with the ships Victory (upon which they sailed on the expedition which led to the discovery of the Magnetic North Pole) and Erebus (which James Ross sailed upon on his Antarctic Expedition.)  The wording ‘1777 – John Ross – 1856 – Arctic – 1800 - James Clark Ross – 1862 – Antarctic’ is in the surround and the value is at the base of the design.
