Commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge with this new, limited edition $2 circulation coin. Honour the solidarity, bravery and sacrifice of Canadians who fought together to take Vimy Ridge. For $10, plus shipping and handling*, you will receive five $2 coins in a specially sealed keepsake.
In the spring of 1917, the Allies launched a new offensive on the Western Front, where all four divisions of the Canadian Corps were ordered to capture the heavily fortified Vimy Ridge. For the first time ever, divisions from all across Canada fought side-by-side at the same time to secure victory. This special two-dollar coin honours the Canadians at Vimy, where their valour and sacrifice contributed to a defining moment for our young nation and its military.
Designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, the coin design features the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in Vimy, France flanked by a First World War soldier on the left and a veteran soldier on the right.
