1991 Steamer Frontenac Launch 175th Anniversary $1 Silver Dollar Coin                                SKU# 512586C

Issued in 1991 by the Royal Canadian Mint, this fascinating silver dollar coin marks the 175th anniversary of the launching of the Steamer Frontenac on the Bay of Quinte in Lake Ontario in 1816. This commemorative issue celebrates the first steamship to sail on the Great Lakes. Built by a partnership of Kingston merchants in 1815, the Frontenac established a regular passenger and freight route between Prescott and Burlington by 1817, thus becoming the first Canadian built steamship to operate on Lake Ontario. A wonderful coin you won't want to miss out on.
