2013 Canadian $4 Heroes of 1812: Laura Secord Fine Silver Coin

 

Part of the Heroes of the War of 1812 Coin Series

Long before her name became synonymous with chocolate, Laura Secord (1775-1868) played a critical part in our nation's success during the War of 1812. Upon hearing American officers discussing their intention to ambush a British outpost and capture its commanding officer, Secord made a 30-kilometre trek by foot to successfully alert 400 First Nations warriors and Lieutenant James FitzGibbon. Upon reaching Beaver Dams, American forces were ambushed themselves by the First Nations warriors and 50 British soldiers, and ultimately forced to surrender.

This unique portrait coin is one of four in a series celebrating Canadian heroes of the War of 1812; and part of a larger collection commemorating the 200th anniversary of this important event. Grab your piece of Canadian history before it sells out!

The background is horizontally bisected by a polished silver band featuring the embossed word "SECORD" in cursive lettering. Beneath the band is the engraved and painted Government of Canada War of 1812 logo, composed of the date "1812" in stylized script over a red stylized maple leaf with ecru swords crossing behind it. The reverse also features the face value of "4 DOLLARS."
