This fine silver collectable coin immortalizes the last fateful sailing of the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald in full colour. On November 10, 1975, the American freighter S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald endured the harshest winter storm conditions on the Great Lakes. Towering waves whipped by hurricane-force winds washed over the loaded vessel's deck as the ship sailed along the Canadian coastline, where the crew hoped to find some relief from the worst of the tempest. But under the cover of darkness, cloaked by the raging snow squall, one of the largest vessels of her kind suddenly and quietly slipped beneath the cold waters of Lake Superior near Whitefish Bay, Ontario, taking with her all 29 of her crew.
