1/4 Ounce Gold Coin From Royal Canadian Mint Available Exclusively From Goldline
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jun 18, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Goldline International is the exclusive dealer for the Royal Canadian Mint’s quarter-ounce gold bullion coin commemorating the bicentennial of the War of 1812. This pivotal war, which has been referred to as America’s second war of independence, began on June 18, 1812.
The War of 1812 involved U.S., British, and Canadian forces started as a protest against perceived violations of the U.S.’s national sovereignty by the British. The British bombardment of Fort McHenry was the inspiration for our country’s national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner.”
The War of 1812’s design features the bust of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse (front). The reverse displays an eagle, representing American forces, facing a lion, symbolizing the English forces. Between these two animals is the shield of military conflict which is emblazoned with the Canadian Maple Leaf.
“On this 200th anniversary, Goldline is honored to be the exclusive dealer for this beautiful gold coin commemorating an important chapter in American history,” said Brian Crumbaker, Chief Executive Officer of Goldline.
For a limited time, Goldline is offering this high quality, limited mintage gold coin at the same price as the popular 1/4 ounce Canadian Maple Leaf bullion coins. These coins are available in sheets of 20 uncirculated coins as long as supplies last.
