1959 St Lawrence Seaway Heraldic Art Co Medal No 2 OBV
This is my second, a duplicate St Lawrence Seaway and it is also the thick version at around 262 grains or 16.98 grams. The mintage for the thick was 2200 where the earlier minted 1959 St Lawrence Seaway variety was thin and 192 grains or almost 12.5 grams of .925 fine silver and had a higher recorded mintage of 3700.

The Saint Lawrence Seaway is a system of locks, canals, and channels in Canada and the United States that permit oceangoing vessels to travel from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes of North America, as far inland as the western end of Lake Superior.

I have been on The Saint Lawrence River and Lake Ontario in my small 18 foot boat fishing for salmon, lake trout and steelhead.
Out far enough to be near the shipping lanes where no land was in sight. To see a huge freighter in the distance was always exciting.
I would love to have been the captain of one of those ships.
