If Confederation represents the political birth of our nation, then the Battle of Vimy Ridge (April 9-12, 1917) marks the beginning of its rise to independent greatness, born of valor and sacrifice on the battlefield, where the Canadian National Vimy Memorial now stands The Royal Canadian Mint commemorates the 100th anniversary of Canada’s historic battle with a fine Silver coin that showcases one of our nation’s most poignant symbols of remembrance.

- Reverse: Designed by Canadian artist Pandora Young, your coin transports you back to April 1917 to the countryside in northern France where Canada's soldiers launched their offensive on the heavily fortified escarpment known as Vimy Ridge. Using the battlefield as a backdrop, the design centres on a close view of a lone Canadian soldier, his face purposely omitted so as to represent any of the combatants during the Battle of Vimy Ridge (April 9-12, 1917). Selective gold plating adds a golden hue to the belted khaki jacket with detachable shoulder straps and a stand-up collar, which features the maple leaf insignia of the Canadian Expeditionary Forces. This unknown soldier holds a steel trench helmet in his left hand; behind his left shoulder is one of the many 18-pound guns that provided the artillery fire used in the Canadians' creeping barrage. Below the soldier is the winged figure of "Victory," with selective gold plating used to recreate the bronze-hued Victory Medal awarded to Allied soldiers in 1919.
- Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.
