2012 Canadian 25-Cent Heroes of 1812: Tecumseh Coloured Quarter Coin



Part of the Heroes of the War of 1812 series

The great Shawnee Chief Tecumseh’s (c.1768-1813) life has fed the imagination of scholars, artists, and poets for 200 years. His death has immortalized him as a legendary Canadian hero, and it is important to remember his objectives: Tecumseh fought heroically out of a desire to build an independent homeland for his people.
Tecumseh’s name meant both “shooting star” and “crouching panther” as he was a dynamic leader and warrior. Your coin is a tribute to the heros of the War of 1812 and will make an ideal gift for historians and admirers of Aboriginal history.


Designed by Canadian artist Bonnie Ross, this coin features Tecumseh against an intricately engraved background comprised of the words “The War of 1812” in both English and French. Featured in the design is the engraved and painted Government of Canada War of 1812 logo: composed of stylistic 1812 typography encompassed by a stylized maple leaf with ecru swords crossing behind it. The reverse also features the face value of "25 cents."
