Design: When it was built in 1713, the fortress on this coin was one of the largest buildings in North America. Founded by France, Louisbourg quickly became the third busiest seaport on the continent, surpassed only by Boston and Philadelphia. The town was thriving - and this made the British nervous.

In 1745, it was captured by New Englanders and a British naval squadron, but was returned under treaty in 1749. Nine years later, the British seized Louisbourg once again. By then, a much stronger military base was taking shape in Halifax so the British destroyed the town before withdrawing in 1768. Today, the Fortress of Louisbourg is a National Historic Site and stands as a living memorial to the 18th-century rivalry for supremacy.
