# 405 - Some Canadian History - Part 2

in steemsilvergold •  5 months ago  (edited)

The information below comes from the site of the Canadian Historical Association:

Founded in 1922, the Canadian Historical Association / La Société Historique du Canada is a bilingual not-for-profit and charitable association devoted to fostering the scholarly study and communication of History in Canada.

The CHA pursues a number of academic and professional activities for the benefit of its members; it sponsors a vast array of publications and represents the interests of historians and the heritage community by actively lobbying archives, museums, governments and granting agencies on issues relating to copyright, access to information, academic freedom and public access to historical documents.

A few years ago it issued a series of silver medallions related to the Canadian History.

They weight around 11.6g (0.37oz), have a 92.5% silver purity and Proof finish.

I could not find how many different medallions were issued, but I have 20 of them and they will be shown chronologically.

The second is the 1610 - Discovery at Cupid's Cove.

In August 1610, Bristol merchant John Guy arrived at Cupers Cove (now Cupids) in Conception Bay, Newfoundland with a small group of colonists. By 1613, the colonists had built at least sixteen structures, including a fort, a sawmill, a gristmill and a brew house.

It is the oldest continuously settled official British colony in Canada.

Oh very nice coin!
So this is to commemorate the establishment of the colony of Cupid's Cove and it's not that they discovered something there. Population 743 in 2016.

You are right, as always. Thanks for the comment.
