This 2016 $15 pure silver coin is the last of a series that honours our everyday heroes, and pays tribute to and recognizes their valour and dedication.  These men and woman face danger each day in the line of duty, yet remain steadfast in their commitment to help others. Mintage is limited to 10,000 coins, adding scarcity and collectability to this tribute. The coin has a weight of about three quarters of an ounce of .9999 fine silver, and a diameter of 36 mm.  As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.

The Design:

The 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.
