    The coin store always tells me that they have no tokens. Yet every time, I seem to find a token.

    Yes, this is technically a token from early Canada and was minted between 1843 and 1854 (as in, when this series was minted).

    It features a very nice ship sailing into eternity, but currently sits docked for a few decades in my collection.

    Technically, this is also a British coin as Canada wasn't autonomous till 1867(?)

      You may get feed-back on the term "wasn't free" !! Try autonomous !! At least Canada shed some of those really horrible oppressive British taxes ! You don't have to mortgage your house to have a party now! I leave UK islands as fast as possible! $35 departure tax for a $25 ferry !! Ridiculous ! (That's Tortola to St. Thomas) . $3 for a soda & taxi's charge for any bags over 1. Keep it in mind if you want to take a vacation on an English island !

      I dunno what you're talking about. ;)
      LOL, I changed it, but both terms are correct. Free from British rule. *Would fail at politics due to my word choice.*

      I love soda-pop, so I'd be bankrupted quite quickly.
      *Will avoid the islands.* Thanks. :P

      You're a fun one. "Wasn't free" is not at term to throw at Canadians. They have always been basically "free". They just don't like to think that they were never "not free". Just like the "Americans"! Maybe, it's just an attitude! Maybe a way of life. Both sides of the border came out winning in the long run! We luv those bloody hose-heads! Maybe they can explain things to you ! LOL!!
      Hey! Just avoid the money-grabbing Eng. islands. Might as well give them all your money when you arrive & ask if there is anything left when you leave. The Eng. outlawed piracy, except in their territory!

      In American History class we always refer to being "free" from British rule, though (We're mostly focusing on the Revolution). This is college, so we have adults saying it too. :P

      I think you'd like Colonial Americans. By the eve of the Revolution, they'd likely insist that the English pirate everything.

      The majority of colonist were loyalists.

      Not by the time the Revolution hit, else it'd have not happened.
