Bravery in its purest form is the willingness to save anotherÕs life despite personal risk. The Royal Canadian Mint proudly honours everyday heroes including our courageous firefighters, who face danger in the line of duty yet remain steadfast in their commitment and dedication to helping others.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Ken Ryan uses selective colour over engraving to create a timeless portrait of a firefighter in the line of duty. In the engraved background, flames and smoke pour out of a residential home as the firefighter emerges in the foreground; he is depicted in full turnout gear, including a red helmet with visor and a tan-coloured jacket with reflective yellow-green and silver trim. Beneath the visor, the firefighterÕs self-contained breathing apparatus is visibleÑthis protects him from the dangers of exposure and smoke inhalation in a fiery environment. In his right hand, the firefighter holds the bolt cutters that help him enter the burning building to search for any trapped occupants; his left hand cradles a dog he has rescued from inside the home and is carrying to safety.

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.
