Add this $20 Fine Silver Calgary Stampede: Victory Stampede coin to your cart today!
From August 25-30, 1919, more than 57,000 people attended the Victory Stampede held at Calgary’s Exhibition Grounds. Those in attendance witnessed thrills and spills as hundreds of cowboys and cowgirls competed in events like bronc riding, fancy roping, trick riding, relay races and more. The Victory Stampede celebrated the end of four long years of war and victory in Europe.
Despite being a one-off event, the “Great Victory Entertainment” planted the seeds for the 1923 western showcase that kicked off an annual tradition in “Stampede City.” This coin is a selectively Gold-plated tribute to the cowboy contests of yesteryear, with a design that reflects history in every engraved detail—from the original Stampede grandstand to the lariat that ropes in the reverse.
