A tribute to our heroes—the military! Order today!

Members of the Canadian Armed Forces serve our country in many ways, devoting their lives to duty and committing to a much greater sacrifice should the need arise. A life of structure and discipline keeps these brave men and women ready for deployment, and speaks of their courage and dedication. Many of our soldiers have served—and continue to serve—in war zones throughout the world, fighting for the ideals we hold dear. Their job doesn't end when the fighting has ceased, with many continuing to serve by helping to rebuild infrastructure in the quest for peace and security.

A heartfelt way to recognize the valour and dedication of these men and women who face danger each day in the line of duty! Order today!

Special features:
  • HONOURS OUR EVERYDAY HEROES! Fourth and final coin in the series that honours our everyday heroes and pays tribute to their dedication to their community and beyond. Other coins in the series include: firefighters, paramedics, and the police.
  • Selective colour over engraving brings to life the heroic depiction of an infantry soldier in the line of duty.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! Crafted in 99.99% pure silver, your coin is GST/HST exempt!

About the Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Ken Ryan, your coin uses selective colour over engraving to create a portrait of bravery in action. In the engraved background, trees and branches hang overhead in this woodland setting, where military helicopters are taking part in rescue operations in an area of conflict. In the foreground, an infantry soldier in combat clothing extends his hand and reaches out to help the viewer, almost pulling us into the dynamic design, while the other gloved hand keeps a tight grip on the rappelling rope. The red-and-white colours of the Canadian flag patch on the upper left sleeve stand out against the green, brown and black camouflage pattern on the helmet and uniform, while the soldier keeps his expression intently focused on the dangerous situation at hand.

Did you know…
  • Members of the military are also active on the home front, where they can be called upon to perform search and rescue operations, patrol our airspace and waters, help with recovery efforts after natural disasters, and much more.
  • The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to all UN peacekeepers in 1988 for their efforts in keeping the peace.
  • Over 175,000 members of Canada's military have served in international peace support efforts in the last 60 years; sadly, more than 1,800 of them lost their lives.
  • Those who make the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the military are commemorated in the seven Books of Remembrance on Parliament Hill.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

            It would be great to offer this Military coin and have a choice of which branch of the Canadian Armed Forces to buy. Eg. one for the Army, one for the Navy and one for the Air Force. OR have all three depicted on one coin.

                      A:

                      pictured on this coin is a composite of various sources of inspiration. He is a representation of his service rather than a specific soldier.
