Last coin in a new series that honours our everyday heroes and thanks them for their valour, commitment and dedication to helping others!

Military personnel serve our country in many ways, devoting their lives to duty as they fight for the ideals and freedoms we hold dear. With this fine silver coin, the Royal Canadian Mint honours the men and women who have served—and continue to serve—at home and abroad in the quest for peace and security. Selective colour over engraving brings to life the heroic depiction of an infantry soldier in the line of duty.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Ken Ryan uses selective colour over engraving to create a portrait of bravery in action. In the engraved background, trees and branches hang overhead in this woodland setting, where military helicopters are taking part in rescue operations in an area of conflict. In the foreground, an infantry soldier in combat clothing extends his hand and reaches out to help the viewer, almost pulling us into the dynamic design, while the other gloved hand keeps a tight grip on the rappelling rope. The red-and-white colours of the Canadian flag patch on the upper left sleeve stand out against the green, brown and black camouflage pattern on the helmet and uniform, while the soldier keeps his expression intently focused on the dangerous situation at hand.

A wonderful addition to your collection and a heartfelt way to recognize the valour and dedication of these men and women, who face danger each day in the line of duty.
