Description

December 6, 1917 saw one of the greatest disasters in Canadian history, when the SS Mont-Blanc, a French cargo ship carrying 3,000 tons of ammunition, collided with the SS Imo, a Norwegian freighter, in Halifax Harbour. In the immediate aftermath of the chaos, citizens and soldiers of the surrounding region rushed to the blast to render whatever aid they could. It was in the recovery and rebirth of the city that the true spirit of Halifax shone brightest. Now, The Bradford Exchange is honoured to pay tribute to one of the most infamous events in Canadian history with this first-ever exclusive minted tribute - Canadian Heritage: The Halifax Explosion Proof Coin.

Presented in Proof Condition, this 24K gold-plated coin is richly detailed with imagery that captures the calm before the storm of that fateful day, including a map of the bottleneck in the Halifax harbour, the SS Mont-Blanc, and the historic chapel that wouldn't survive the inferno.
