Breton 717 - Canada

717

The date on this coin is that of the establishment of the firm which many years did a druggist business in Toronto. Part of their warehouse was devoted to the sale of books and other forms of literature. Toronto did not receive its present name until 1834. This coin must have been issued after that date. The issue was a large one, but notwithstanding, the coin is rare, especially in fine condition. R. 4.

1850-52-54-57. 2 var. 1854. After the burning of the parliamentary buildings in Montreal in 1849, the seat of Government was changed to Toronto, and the Bank of Upper Canada, as the chief banking institution of that city, became the government banker. It was also accorded the privilege of issuing copper coins. This bank was founded in 1820, three years after the Bank of Montreal, and two years after the Quebec Bank. During the financial crisis of 1867-68, the Bank of Upper Canada suspended, and after examination of' its affairs it was found impossible to re-organize, it therefore went into liquidation. About eleven tons of these coins were found in the bank vaults. These were taken possession of by the government, and after a few years, they were sold as old metal to Chanteloup, by whom they were melted up under the supervision of a government officer. R. 0.

This is the first coin struck for Canada after the conquest. As all known specimens of this piece are proofs, we may conclude that it was never issued for circulation, and that the dies are probably in the hands of some collector who issues specimens from time to time so as not to break the price. R. 5.

Early in the morning of October 13th, 1812, the American Army Corps, under the command of General Van Rensselaer, crossed the Niagara River and took up a strong position on Queenstown Heights. General Brock on hearing the cannonade set out from the village of Niagara to dislodge them and had he not been mortally wounded, would have been successful at the first onslaught. After his fall his men continued the fight with varying success until the arrival of Major-General Sheaffe, when the invaders were driven across the river after the loss of 1,000 men. The die cutter made a mistake in the dies, inscribing Brook instead of Brock. R. 1.

The design on this piece is a representation of the first monument erected in memory of General Brock, which was maliciously destroyed by a man named Lett, who blew it up. The present monument was erected twenty- five or thirty years ago by public subscription. It is a much finer and higher monument than the old one, and is one of the landmarks of the district, as a fine view can be obtained of it from the Canada Southern Railway on the way from the village of Niagara to the Falls. 6 varieties.

This token seems to have been issued by a wholesale grocer, and the words Upper Canada on the cask indicates that the whiskey trade was one of the first established in the upper province, and eventually drove rum, so popular among Canadians, out of use. R. 2 ½.

This coin, dated 1832, bears the bust of George IV, who had died two years before. Among the coins of Nova Scotia, the same mistake occurs, coins dated 1832 bear the bust of Geo. IV. This indicates that both coinages were struck at the same place, and we may conclude, taking their weight and workmanship into consideration, that this is a private issue rather than an official coin.
