Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
The Battle of Lundy’s Lane (also known as the Battle of Niagara Falls) took place on the 25th of July in 1814, during the War of 1812; it has been described by historians as one of the bloodiest battles in Canadian history. American and British North American forces came to blows over territorial gains, and the Battle of Lundy’s Lane was a grisly encounter that marked the height of the violence of this Anglo-American war. This coin features an intensely-rendered depiction of advancing American troops on the left, engaged in battle with British forces as they hold the high ground at Lundy’s Lane; the image by Canadian artist Bonnie Ross is inspired by an illustration by Charles William Jeffrey, and captures the energy and emotion of this infamous battle. The extra-large diameter of the coin makes for a generous canvas, and allows the superior craftsmanship of the Mint’s engravers to be showcased to its full potential. The moment is memorialized in a staggering 1 kilogram of 99.99% pure gold; this is the last of the 1 kilo coins from the Royal Canadian Mint’s 1812 series! The obverse of the coin boasts a rarely-seen grid pattern behind the effigy of HRM Queen Elizabeth II. This phenomenal piece would make a notable and substantial addition to any collection of pure gold, or a generous gift for any lover of Canadian history.
