The economic hardships of the Great Depression had left Canada's military undermanned and unprepared for the onset of war, and its equipment was at risk of being outdated.

Thanks to a national recruitment drive, over 58,000 men and women enlisted by the month's end. Coastal defences were reinforced, militia regiments were mobilized and the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP)–which would eventually train nearly half of the Commonwealth's air crews on Canadian soil–was implemented. In December, units of the 1st Canadian Infantry Division set sail from Halifax to Britain–the first wave of Canadians who would serve overseas until the war's end in 1945.

Meanwhile, Canada's economy adapted quickly to the war effort and transformed the country into an economic power. New industries were created while existing factories converted to the production of wartime materials. Thousands of airplanes, ships, vehicles, guns and ammunition would be produced by factories in Canada, which became the fourth largest supplier among the Allied countries.

I absolutely love the size and design of this coin. And would recommend it to anyone whom enjoys war coins. I absolutely hate the pop up adds for the canoe coins and Loony Tunes coins. I am sure regular advertising and emails are more than enough to promote these sets. It makes navigating the site tedious and annoying.

I purchased this coin to honour my late grandfather who served in both great wars. I was not disappointed. Because of its size the detail is stunning. I'm also a coin collector and this is a superb addition to my collection.

As soon as i saw this coin i knew i wanted it. Coin is large with a nice leather bound hinged case. Upon inspection, i found markings on the outer rim of the coin...im no expert, but i do believe there shouldnt be any..very disappointed in that. Everything else was very nice! Something to keep for a long time.
