About Yarmouth

The Town of Yarmouth is the regional centre of South Western Nova Scotia. The Town's population of 7200 people literally doubles on weekdays with the influx of workers and students from surrounding areas. Yarmouth is the financial, business, education, and lifestyle centre for the 70,000 people who live in the tri-counties of Yarmouth, Digby and Shelburne.

The port of Yarmouth, located in the heart of the world's largest lobster fishing grounds, is central to Yarmouth's history and development. With Canada's most lucrative fishing industry, Yarmouth and the Acadian Shores have a culture and economy historically tied to fishing and related industries.

       For those who would like to purchase the coin commemorating the return of ferry service to Yarmouth, it’s still available, although there aren’t too many left and we have no plans to have another run. Fifteen-hundred of the coins were produced and there are about 150 remaining, Bearing an image of the new ferry on the front and the chamber of commerce logo on the back – is the second in a series that began in 2011  for the coin marking the Yarmouth area’s 250th anniversary.  

      There likely will be a third coin in this series, but when it will be issued has yet to be determined. The chamber came out with a series of commemorative coins in the 1980s.

       This is your last chance to purchase this coin as sales will end shortly.  The $10 coin can now only be purchased at the Yarmouth and Area Chamber of Commerce, 368 Main Street Suite 108  Phone: 902-742-3074
