Beautifully detailed reverse design features Canadian artist John Horton’s depiction of HMS Shannon’s historic defeat of USS Chesapeake during the War of 1812, presented in a beautiful proof finish.

Designed by Canadian artist John Horton, the reverse image depicts the final moments of the famous battle of HMS Shannon, pictured on the right, and the battle-worn USS Chesapeake, pictured on the left with its decks ablaze and gun-ports destroyed. The embossed bilingual title celebrates HMS Shannon’s victory by listing its name first: “THE/Le SHANNON AND THE/et le CHESAPEAKE.” The reverse side also features the dates “1813 -2013” commemorating the bicentennial of HMS Shannon’s famous defeat of USS Chesapeake.
