Description

Fifty years after the Sambro Island lighthouse was built in Halifax, a new lighthouse was built at the port of York (now Toronto) at Gibraltar Point in 1808.  In 1878, a powerful, revolving light added to he lighthouse made Gibraltar one of the best lighthouses in North America. In addition to innovation, the mysterious death of Gibraltar’s first keeper in 1815 also built Gibraltar’s fame.  After some 200 years of faithful service, the lighthouse of Toronto Island stands as the oldest existing lighthouse of the Great Lakes.  The Mint has utilized a high-tech minting technique to accentuate the beam of light warning ships at night.
