This fine silver collectable coin with gold plating honours the HMS Shannon, an historic ship with an iconic past. On June 1, 1813, battle erupted between Britain’s HMS Shannon and the USS Chesapeake offshore from Boston. It was one year into the war; the Royal Navy’s morale was low; Shannon’s provisions were almost exhausted, and she was showing signs of wear. Still, her highly-trained crew quickly destroyed the gun-ports of her heavier-manned opponent. It was an intense 15-minute battle; the bloodiest aboard a frigate during the war that won a critical victory for Britain.

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
