Selective colour over engraving brings to life this depiction of paramedics in action as they rush a patient to the hospital. Bravery in its purest form is the willingness to save anotherÕs life despite personal risk. The Royal Canadian Mint celebrates paramedics as our everyday heroes with this fine silver coin, which pays tribute to their commitment to save lives and reduce suffering in the communities they serve.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Ken Ryan uses selective colour over detailed engraving in this snapshot of paramedics in action. Engraved in the background is a rear view of an ambulance, its doors open wide just moments after arriving at a hospitalÕs ambulance bay. In the foreground, vibrant colour highlights the paramedics in their dark uniforms, complete with bright yellow and silver reflective bands just below the knees. Their faces are intent and convey the pressing nature of their important role; they are quick to unload the yellow-coloured stretcher from the ambulance before rushing toward the building, which will allow the patient to receive the continuum of medical care she desperately needs.

A wonderful addition to your collection, and a heartfelt way to honour the valour and dedication of these men and women in your community.
