A 99.99% pure gold coin that preserves the memory of a Victory! Order today!

Magnificently reproduced on this 99.99% pure gold coin, the Victory Nickel's flaming torch has been rekindled to ensure a legacy of honour carries on. Its iconic "V for Victory" design was an extraordinary expression of solidarity when it first appeared in 1943. Then, when the Second World War ended in 1945 – a victory seemingly foretold by the coin's coded inscription – the Victory Nickel instantly became a lasting memento of a war that transformed Canada, and the sacrifices that paved the way to peace.

It's a historic coin design from 75 years ago, re-imagined as a modern 99.99% pure gold coin. Order today!

Special features:
  • PRESERVED IN GOLD: The Victory Nickel's flaming torch has been rekindled – this time, in 99.99% pure gold to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
  • MATTE PROOF FINISH: A matte proof finish gives you the best of both worlds: the impeccable appearance of a proof coin, but in a satin finish that turns down the shine to give it a slightly aged look.
  • NEAR-FAITHFUL REPRODUCTION: This is the design that was on our five-cent circulation coin, and in the pockets of Canadians, when the Second World War ended 75 years ago. For our gold tribute, we went to great lengths to create a slightly larger, modern-day version that is as close to the original design as possible.
  • BOTH SIDES OF HISTORY: In keeping with the spirit of the original coin, our modern-day version features the same effigy of King George VI.
  • LOW MINTAGE: Only 400 of these coins are available worldwide. Order today!

Design:

The reverse features a modern-day reproduction of the celebrated Victory design by Thomas Shingles, as seen on Canada's five-cent coins issued between 1943 and 1945. A flaming torch represents the sacrifices made by Canadians at home and on the battlefields during the Second World War. Behind it, a big "V" has dual meaning: it alludes to Sir Winston Churchill's famous "V for Victory" sign, and is also the Roman numeral that represents the denomination (5). There is a maple leaf on both sides of the V, while a bilingual version of the original Morse code inscription ("WE WIN WHEN WE WORK WILLINGLY  LA BONNE VOLONTÉ EST GAGE DE VICTOIRE") appears in place of traditional denticles. The obverse features the historical effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget.

Did you know…
  • To avoid confusion with the cent, Canada's nickel was re-designed in 1942 to feature 12 flat sides. It returned to a round shape in 1963.
  • Sir Winston Churchill's famous "V for Victory" sign inspired this coin design, which includes a coded patriotic message in place of denticles.
  • The master matrix for the 1943 Victory Nickel was the first one made entirely in Canada. It was hand-cut by the legendary Thomas Shingles, who became Chief Engraver of the Royal Canadian Mint that same year.

Packaging:

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