O n September 2, 1945 the Second World War officially came to an end, hope was restored, and the iconic Victory nickel went down in Canadian history as a powerful symbol of hope.

This year, as we celebrate the anniversary of the end of the long-fought battle, the famous 'V' serves as the centrepiece of our latest commemorative coin, a coin designed to honour and remember the brave men and women who fought for our freedom – 75 years ago.

Hold onto bravery.
