About Laura Secord:
One of the legendary Canadian Heroes of 1812, Laura Secord (1775-1868) played a critical part in our nation's success during the War of 1812. Upon hearing American officers discussing their intention to ambush a British outpost and capture its commanding officer, Secord made a 30-kilometre trek by foot to successfully alert 400 First Nations warriors and Lieutenant James FitzGibbon. Upon reaching Beaver Dams, American forces were ambushed themselves by the First Nations warriors and 50 British soldiers, and ultimately forced to surrender.

This coin is a tribute to the heroes of the War of 1812 and will make an ideal anyone interested in Canadian history and the role of our First Nations during this important time in the building of Canada.
