Mintage of only 7,500 coins!
Internationally renowned marine artist Yves Bérubé found his inspiration for this coin’s design while he was aboard an ice-locked ship and watched through a porthole as the Louis S. St-Laurent came to the rescue - a vision that perfectly embodies the CCG’s past, present and future. Each coin is accompanied by a vial containing a small piece of steel from the pre-refit bow of CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent taken during its refitting to keep the vessel operating until its replacement can be commissioned in 2017. This refitting process is symbolic of the life-cycle of all CCG ships, making the steel piece an exceptional memento of both the history of the Canadian Coast Guard and the historic CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent. Each fine silver coin is accompanied by a piece of steel from the ship’s pre-refit bow and showcased in a Canadian Maple wood case. A perfect gift for Canadian maritime enthusiasts.
