In 1962, The Canadian Coast Guard was created as a federal organization. Within a few years, the icebreaker CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent was launched to take on its critical role in the navigation, research, communications and support of mariners in Canadian waters. This $20 coin contains just over one fine ounce of silver and features the icebreaker CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent.

The 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. The coin and vial come displayed in an attractive wood case.

Very Nice Piece of History

By gg1965

from New Brunswick

I like this set very much. It's a very nice piece of history. I will consider to buy more coins in the future.


Refund Received!



Bronze Reviewer

Just a follow up to my earlier review of this item, I have received my return refund in full. Since then, i have purchased another coin for my son and he is thrilled to add it to his collection.


Historic and Nicely displayed



I purchased this item for my son being that he is a collector and I was very impressed with the coin itself and the little bit of history included from the hull of the boat soon to be retired. Unfortunately I had to return this purchase because my son already had this in his collection. I returned this item May 7, 2013 and to date I still do not have a credit issued to me for this return. I am a long time loyal customer with TSC and have not had any problems until now. I do hope that we can resolve this ASAP.


Special Set!

This set is wonderful, both for your own collection and for a gift. I got this as a birthday present and believe it to be one of the most beautiful gifts I can give! The set is a fantastic representative of some of Canadian history! Thanks again for a lovely coin set!
