2013 Canada $2500 Battle of Chateauguay & Battle of Crysler Gold (No Tax)

War of 1812

Royal Canadian Mint engravers faithfully reproduced portions of historical works by Canadian artists to create the reverse design in commemoration of two key battles from the War of 1812.

The upper portion of the coin features a section from the mural Climax of the Action at Crysler's Farm by Adam Sherriff-Scott (1887-1980). Sherriff-Scott is renowned for his grand depictions of historical subjects and created this powerful image of heavily outnumbered Canadian troops forcing the American invaders across the field in defeat.

The lower portion of the coin features the central portion of the illustration Bataille de la Chateauguay (Battle of the Chateauguay) by Henri Julien (1852-1908). Julien is renowned for his depictions of daily habitant life and for the speed and accuracy of his work as represented in this portrayal of de Salaberry rallying his diverse and united troops in battle.

Both images are cropped in a manner that echoes the map of Upper Canada with the northeastward flow of the St. Lawrence and its two British strongholds-Kingston and Montreal.
