Product Details

Mintage of only 10,000 coins!
Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Laurie McGaw and features four portraits: Georgina Pope in the foreground and, in the background, three military women from the last century whose careers Pope helped to pioneer, including a nurse from the First World War, a member of the Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service from the Second World War, and a female member of Canada’s military today. Coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint branded maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a black sleeve. Contains 23.17 grams of .9999 fine silver.

In 1899, Georgina Pope became one of four volunteer nurses—each given the rank of lieutenant—to travel to South Africa to assist British troops in the South African War. This appointment was a significant moment in the evolution of women’s participation in the Canadian military. For the first time, women acting as nurses were given a military rank as well as the salary attributed to that rank. Because of Georgina Pope and women like her, today’s Canadian Forces, including all branches of the Service are open to women. Your coin makes an ideal gift for someone you know interested in women’s previous and ongoing participation in the Canadian Armed Forces.
