Acquire a 1/2 oz 2017 Royal Canadian Mint War of 1812 Platinum Coin from our online store and enjoy the lowest price, anywhere!

The war of 1812 can be seen as one of the most pivotal and galvanizing events in Canadian history. Although at the time, Canada remained a British colony, the war helped to instill a sense of national pride and sovereignty within the Great Nation. In the wake of the aftermath of the "Chesapeake affair" of 1807, which involved British instigating an attack on American warships, in which 17 American seamen were killed, President James Madison declared war on Britain. The war would be instigated by way of the British controlled landmass above the United States, known today as Canada. It was presumed that Canada would be of little threat to America and little help to their British allies. Instead, the war galvanized the Nation, the individuals living in Canada, the First Nations who fought alongside the British, and freed African slaves who strove to fight for the Canadian cause. At the war's conclusion, tens of thousands of men gave their lives. However, the foundation was set for the birth of a Great Nation. Canada gained its own independence on July 1st, 1867. This spectacular 1/2 oz 9995 pure platinum coin pays homage to this war and the Nations that took part in it.

Held on the reverse side, are the animal effigies for the two nations that participated in the conflict. On the left is a Lion, symbolic of England on the right, is an Eagle representative of The United States. In the middle, a military shield containing the emblem and National pride of Canada, the Maple leaf. Above the shield is the year of issue, while below is the purity.

The obverse contains the bust of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Susanna Blunt. Below the Queen is the coin's 50 dollars denominational value.

Platinum is a great option to fortify your holdings with, as it steadily gains value over time. Additionally, this meticulously crafted coin serves as a reminder of one of the most significant events in Canada's history.
