Description

Goldline is proud to be the exclusive dealer for the Royal Canadian Mint's ½ ounce platinum bullion coin commemorating the War of 1812. The War of 1812 is often described as America's second war of independence. It began as a protest against perceived violations of the U.S.'s national sovereignty by the British and was the first time that America declared war on another nation. America's historic national anthem, "The Star Spangled Banner," was penned during Britain's naval bombardment of Baltimore's Fort McHenry.
