Tecumseh led a confederation of Indian tribes that fought the United States and tried to form an Indian nation under British protection.  After he was killed in battle by the Americans in 1813 his confederation fell apart. The British abandoned their Indian allies in the peace conference that ended the war.  The Americans took possession of the territory and drove the Indians onto reservations or further west.  Tecumseh is portrayed wearing a British Indian peace medal bearing the portrait of George III.  Sir Isaac Brock successfully defeated attempts by the United States to invade Canada.  He and Tecumseh joined forces to defeat a larger American army at Fort Detroit in 1812.   The 2013 issues depicts Lieutenant Colonel Charles-Michel de Salaberry and Laura Secord.  During the War of 1812 de Salaberry's Voltigeurs Canadiens militia helped protect Montreal from the United States.   During Battle of Châteauguay in October 1813 his force of 1700 turned back an American force of some 3000 troops.  In 1813 Laura Secord walked 20 miles out of American occupied territory to warn British forces of an impending attack.    Queen Elizabeth is on the obverse of all the coins.

CANADIAN SILVER DOLLAR CELEBRATES PILE O'BONES

Canada Regina 1982 silver dollar KM133Pile O' Bones was the name of a hunters' camp located in central Canada.  It was so named because heaps of bones were left there from skinning and cutting buffalo.   In 1882 the Canadian Pacific Railroad came through, and it was renamed Regina, to honor Queen Victoria.  It was the administrative headquarters of the Northwest Territories from 1882 until 1905, when it became the capital of the newly formed province of Saskatchewan.  To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the formal founding of the City of Regina, Canada issued a commemorative Proof silver dollar in 1982.  One side features the provincial capitol building and a cattle skull, which is an acknowledgement to the city's origin.  The other side features Queen Elizabeth.  The coin is 36mm in diameter and contains .3750 troy ounces of silver.  It comes in its original mint box and capsule.

NewCANADA 1964 CHARLOTTETOWN SILVER DOLLAR

Canada 1964 silver dollar commemorating 100th anniversary of Charlottetown and Qubec conferencesCanada young head silver dollarCanada issued a circulating commemorative silver dollar in 1964 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Charlottetown and Quebec Conferences.  The conferences laid the groundwork for the establishment of the Dominion of Canada in 1867. The Charlottetown Conference was held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island in September 1864. Initially the conference was to discuss a union of the Maritime colonies, but was expanded to include the Province of Canada as well.  Britain encouraged the union, hoping the colonies would become less dependent on the Crown and provide for greater economic and military power for the region in light of the American Civil War.   A circus came to Charlottetown the same week, the first one to visit in over 20 years. Folks were much more interested in the circus than politics.  Workers left their jobs and folks from all over the island came into town which made accommodations difficult for the delegates.  A second conference was held in Quebec the following month.  The Quebec Conference created 72 Resolutions which laid the foundation for unifying the colonies.  The resolutions covered a wide range of issues, from governmental powers to building railroads.   The coin depicts young Queen Elizabeth on the obverse.  The reverse features an emblem incorporating the French fleur-de-lis, the Irish shamrock, the Scottish thistle, and the English rose representing the main nationalities that settled Canada.   Around it is the legend "CHARLOTTETOWN • QUÉBEC", the dates "1864" and "1964".  The 36mm coin is struck in .800 fine silver and contains .6  troy ounces of silver.   The Brilliant Uncirculated coin comes sealed in its original mint holder.

The sets were issued at the height of the 1960’s coin boom. This 1965 set featured the new Arnold Machin portrait of Queen Elizabeth. And the U.S. mint had just stopped selling Proof sets, all of which sparked speculative interest in the sets.  Sales were by mail only and were limited to five sets per order.   Dealers, investors and collectors crowded the post offices nearest the mint in order to place multiple orders.  The sets sold out within a few hours and many orders were sent back.  We have this attractive and popular Proof-like set in their original mint packaging at a modest premium above their melt value. We also have a few original unopened mint sealed boxes of five Canadian Proof-like sets and recently found some 1966 Canadian Proof-like sets.  Few of the original mint sealed boxes still exist today, making them a real collector’s item!

NewWORLD WAR II CANADIAN MEAT RATION TOKEN

Canada World War II meat ration tokenMeat was rationed in Canada during World War II.  Families received a ration booklet which allowed them to purchase a limited quantity of rationed goods, including tea, coffee, sugar, butter, booze and meat each week.  Each weekly meat ration coupon was good for 2 pounds of meat.  The problem was that many did not have refrigeration at home, so they would either forfeit the whole coupon for a lesser amount of meat, or buy their full amount and risk it going bad before it could be used.  In 1945 the Canadian government finally wised up and issued meat ration tokens that were good for a lesser quantity of meat. Each token was worth 1/8 of a meat ration coupon (1/4 pound of meat), so if someone bought less than their full ration of meat the tokens could be given out to be used later.  If one bought half their weekly ration of meat, they would receive four tokens for later use.  The 22mm blue token is struck on a heavy blue cardboard with a center hole. Both sides have the same design with the words "CANADA - RATION MEAT - VIANDE" and two maple leaves.
