Tecumseh - 25-cent circulation coin commemorating the 200th anniversary of the start of the War of 1812. There are several designs floating around: Tecumseh, Sir Issac Brock, Charles-Michel de Salaberry, Laura Secord, and also a toonie for the HMS Shannon. After waiting for quite some time, I found the HMS Shannon toonie in my change, and managed to trade for a Tecumseh quarter; so that's two down, seven to go!
The War of 1812 was a 32-month military conflict between the United States and the British Empire and their Indian allies which resulted in no territorial change between the Empire and the USA, but a resolution of many issues which remained from the American War of Independence.
