The year 2013 marked the 300th anniversary of the founding of the historic settlement of Louisbourg and is celebrated with this 1/25 ounce pure gold collectable coin. Initially founded by a small group of French colonists in 1713, Louisbourg quickly became a thriving community around its large natural port. It was the centre of French power in the Atlantic region, home to one of the largest military garrisons in New France, an important economic and cultural crossroads, and a major hub for fishing and trading ships from around the world. Captured by the British in 1758, Louisbourg was eventually abandoned in 1768. Today, it is considered a National Historical Site, known for laying the foundation for the country that would one day be called Canada.

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