We have no idea what was in Sir John Franklin’s wallet, but we do know where he travelled. From the Battle of Trafalgar to Canada’s Arctic coast, follow us on a trip through the formative years of Sir John Franklin’s career—illustrated with currency representing the societies he encountered on the way to war or to the frontiers of nineteenth-century European exploration. From January 29, 2018 until January 20, 2019.
