INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

A silver coin depicting the famous ship William D. Lawrence.

Built in 1874 in William D. Lawrence's shipyard in Maitland, she was the largest wooden sailing ship of her time and one of the largest wooden ships ever built in Canada. This ship defied critics who claimed that a wooden ship of its size would only be a waste of money that could not survive on the water.

After several profitable years the ship was sold to Norwegian owners. In 1891 it was trapped in the English Channel and converted to a barge which later sank in the Dakar in Africa.

The coin is decorated with a hologram depicting the famous ship.
