Right from its onset, the Second World War ushered in a new era for Canadians. When Canada declared war on September 11, 1939, it did so as an independent nation, not as a colony automatically drawn into the conflict by Britain. The romanticized patriotism that had greeted the First World War was gone, replaced by a collective memory of the heavy losses that had been suffered. The Great Depression had left Canada's military undermanned and underequipped, and idle factories and a diminished workforce now faced an urgent demand for airplanes, ships, vehicles, guns and munitions.

Canada's women responded, and soon represented 25 percent of wartime workers. By 1944, 439,000 women were in the service sectors, 373,000 in manufacturing, including 261,000 in munitions alone.

Women helped build the Allied war effort, they turned their nation into an economic power, and forever transformed their role in society—and at war.

Lovely detail work, especially on the faces. Would have been nice if it included a little card/note/booklet to explain more about the significance of the design. Ie that is was there women working on one of the bombers, etc.

This is really an attractive coin commemorating the building of the Avro Lancaster bomber by women who went to work while the men went off to war. The detailing is absolutely outstanding. I loved the coin when I saw it in the ads, holding it in my hand, it's even more stunning. I can't think of any cons.

Beautiful coin of Canada's "Ronnies"

Besides being a coin that so beautifully commemorates the work of Canada's "Ronnies", it is a reminder for me of my aunt's contribution to the war effort. She was so proud of her work and I was so proud of her!

Great Tribute to the Home Front

5

This is a powerful coin that recalls a too-often forgotten part of the history of World War II: the home front. The coin is reminiscent of the US propaganda poster known as Rosie the Riviter, but with a more elegant design, that creates a central V shape (delta, a symbol for women), with a strong woman rising from this cup. This period moved women into non-traditional roles more and helped to set the stage for both the reactionary period that followed and for the later feminist movement. Reminiscent of the poster
