When it was built by the French in 1713, the fortress of Louisbourg was one of the largest buildings in North America. This historical site is brought to life on this fine silver collectable coin. In 1745, the fortress was captured by the British, 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.
