2013 Canadian 25-Cent Heroes of 1812: Charles-Michel de Salaberry Quarter Original Coin Roll (Some Coloured)


Part of the Heroes of the War of 1812 series

Charles-Michel d’Irumberry de Salaberry’s group of Colonial regulars, the Voltigeurs Canadiens, was a light infantry unit that would become one of the most successful and well-known units to fight in the War of 1812. 

Voltigeurs, forcing the American troops to retreat, despite the fact that they outnumbered the Voltigeurs and their Aboriginal allies by more than two to one. 

Despite the legend arising around de Salaberry and the Battle of Châteauguay, including the assertion that 300 allies had forced the retreat of 7,000 Americans, the significance of that battle and de Salaberry’s role in it remain indisputable despite historical exaggeration. The actions and heroism of de Salaberry and the Voltigeurs remain key moments in the War of 1812.



Designed by Canadian artist Bonnie Ross, this coin features a three-quarter profile portrait of Charles-Michel de Salaberry set against an intricately engraved background comprised of the bilingual text “The War of 1812/La guerre de 1812.” This background is horizontally bisected by a polished silver band featuring the embossed word “de Salaberry” in cursive lettering. Beneath this band is the engraved and painted Government of Canada War of 1812 logo composed of the date “1812” in 1812-style handwritten lettering laid over a stylized maple leaf with ecru swords crossing behind it. The reverse also features the face value of "25 cents."
