Created to commemorate the bicentennial of a historic battle of the War of 1812, this unique coin is part of a larger collection celebrating the heroes and events of the War of 1812—a formative event in Canadian history. The beautifully detailed reverse design features Canadian artist John Horton’s depiction of HMS Shannon’s historic defeat of USS Chesapeake during the War of 1812, presented in a beautiful proof finish.

The reverse image depicts the final moments of the famous battle of HMS Shannon, pictured on the right, and the battle-worn USS Chesapeake, pictured on the left with its decks ablaze and gun-ports destroyed. The embossed bilingual title celebrates HMS Shannon’s victory by listing its name first: “THE/Le SHANNON AND THE/et le CHESAPEAKE.” The reverse side also features the dates “1813 -2013” commemorating the bicentennial of HMS Shannon’s famous defeat of USS Chesapeake.
