This pure gold collectable coin commemorates the War of 1812. The eagle, representing American forces, stands powerfully opposed to the lion, who symbolizes the British forces. Between them stretches the shield of military conflict upon which is emblazoned the maple leaf, signifying the shared resolve of the English- and French-speaking Canadian volunteers and Indigenous warriors who worked together to bravely defend their land and ways of life.
