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.

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

By GAIL

from REGINA

Bronze Reviewer

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!

By Bunny

from Abbotsford, B.C.

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!
