Coronation Gulf is a broad indentation in the arctic shore of the territory of Nunavut, roughly the shape of the south coast of Victoria Island, which lies directly north. The gulf receives the Coppermine River, Tree River, Rae River and others and merges with Bathurst Inlet to the east. The small settlement of Kugluktuk lies at the mouth of the Coppermine River. The gulf was named by Sir John Franklin in 1821, in honour of the coronation of King George IV. The environment and Native culture of the area were studied by Rudolph Anderson and Diamond Jenness in 1916 as part of the Canadian Arctic Expedition.
