A tribute to our heroes! Subscribe today!

$5 from your purchase of the "Firefighters" coin, the first coin in the National Heroes series, will be donated to the Red Cross Alberta Fires Appeal (Fort McMurray)

Humans distinguish themselves from other species by consciously putting themselves in danger to save the lives of others. For some people, these selfless acts of bravery do not happen by chance: they are part of their daily lives when they report to work as firefighters, paramedics, police officers and military personnel.

This inspiring new series pays tribute to these outstanding heroes—individuals of uncommon courage who have made a personal commitment to serve others and face danger every day in the line of duty.

A heartfelt way to recognize the valour and dedication of those who face danger every day in the line of duty! Subscribe today!

About the first coin design:

Designed by Canadian artist Ken Ryan, the first coin in your subscription uses selective colour over engraving to create a timeless portrait of a firefighter in the line of duty. In the engraved background, flames and smoke pour out of a residential home as the firefighter emerges in the foreground; he is depicted in full turnout gear, including a red helmet with visor and a tan-coloured jacket with reflective yellow-green and silver trim. Beneath the visor, the firefighter’s self-contained breathing apparatus is visible—this protects him from the dangers of exposure and smoke inhalation in a fiery environment. In his right hand, the firefighter holds a pike pole, used to pull apart debris. His left hand cradles a dog that he has rescued from inside the home and is carrying to safety.

Why a vendor preference for paramedic coin ??????

      Comments about Pure Silver 4-Coin Subscription – National Heroes – Mintage: 10000 (2016):

      Why is the paramedic cot shown clearly promoting a specific vendor brand over a competitor ? All the other emergency service coins are generic in nature yet the paramedic cot by being yellow favors one manufacturer over another.

            This set was given to me by my fiancée as a wedding present. I am extremely impressed with the detail in the firefighter colouring. The pictures on the website don't do it justice.
            I would recommend this to any other servicemen as well Who share my intrest in coins.

              I ordered the firefighter and it came with the box. I don't know if I signed up for the rest of the coins. Do I have to order them separately or do they just come. I haven't seen anything from the mint for awhile.
