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, regiments from all across Canada fought side-by-side to secure victory using an innovative tactic known as a creeping barrage.

A poignant addition to your coin display. Order today.

I have been waiting for months for the Vimy Toonie to come out. Both my grandfathers died at Vimy so I am very happy to have another coin to add to the collection and to give as gifts.

D Hunter

Hi D Hunter, We are selling 5-packs of the $2 Vimy Ridge coins. It's called "2017 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge $2 Circulation Coin Pack". Here's the link to the product page; http://www.mint.ca/store/acquisitioncoins/2017-100th-anniversary-of-the-battle-of-vimy-ridge-2-circulation-coin-pack-prod3090135

Chad

Why did the mint decide to offer rolls of the commerative $2 Vimy Ridge for sale to customers rather than have more addforable packaging in a card with say five commerative Vimy Ridge two dollar coins. I think having rolls in special wrapping with a asking price of $79 is a bit much

countyboy

Hi, the commemorative $2 Vimy Ridge coin is indeed available in a card of five as well.

Yudi (Product Team)

Is there any difference in these 2 dollar coins than the 5 pack?

Ferdie

They are essentially the same, but the coins in the roll are among the first ones struck; also, the roll serves as a special packaging for these coins.

Yudi (Product Team)

Will this $2 coins be available on their own rather than in a roll?

CoinGuy

Yes, they are circulation coins, so they are also available in singles. The coins in the roll are among the first ones struck, and the roll serves as a special packaging for the coins.
