New Canadian Commemorative Coin: the 300th Anniversary of Louisbourg

The year 2013 marks the 300th anniversary of the founding of the Louisbourg settlement. In commemoration of this historical event, the Royal Canadian Mint has crafted pure gold and silver collector coins which celebrate the origins of Louisbourg’s founding in 1713 and its survival as a living monument of early Canadian history.

After being captured by the British in 1758 and later abandoned as a military outpost, Louisbourg was declared a national historic site in 1926 and its historic structures were re-built in the 1960’s to give the visitors a unique experience of life in 1740’s New France. Today, the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site is both a model of world-class historic reconstruction and a reminder of the essential role the settlement had in the development of Nova Scotia, and to help
laying the foundation for the country that would one day be Canada.
