Graded a near perfect MS-69 by NGC. Only 21 coins were graded MS-69, with none higher! This is as close to perfect as they come. A stunning heraldic commemoration of the bicentennial of a pivotal moment in Canadian, British, and American history. The eagle, representing American forces, stands powerfully opposed to the lion, who symbolizes the British forces. Between them stretches the shield of military conflict upon which is emblazoned the maple leaf, signifying the shared resolve of the English and French-speaking Canadian volunteers and First Nations warriors who worked together to bravely defend their land and ways of life. Hand polished! The field (flat background) has a highly hand polished mirror-like finish. Embossed with the commemorative dates "1812-2012" and the bilingual hallmark of the Royal Canadian Mint’s renowned purity and craftsmanship, "9999" and "FINE GOLD ¼ OZ OR PUR"
