New Louisbourg Coins

Peter Gogh

Today the Royal Canadian Mint launched two new coins. One gold and one Silver.

The coins were designed to celebrate the three-hundred anniversary of the founding of the Louisbourg settlement. this is the kick-off event for a series of event that will run throughout the summer......and of course there's a Cape Breton twist.
Peter Gogh designed the gold coin and has two very interesting Cape Breton connections.
