Expiration: a coming to an end; termination; close: the expiration of a contract.
Expiry: an end or termination, as of life or a contract. An expiration, especially of a contract or an agreement
Expiration 通常用於每日日常生活用語，例如駕駛執照到期日, 食品效期。
Expiration is more commonly used around day-to-day life stuff, such as expiration of food, expiration of your driver license.
While, expiry is more commonly used in legal (contract) terms such as the expiry of labor contract, the expiry of options/future contracts.
Actually, a lot of the time, they are used interchangeably as you can see from the examples below. 實際上，很多時刻，他們可交換地使用。
