Description


In the spring of 1917, the Allies launched a new offensive on the Western Front, where all four divisions of the Canadian Corps were ordered to capture the heavily fortified Vimy Ridge. For the first time ever, regiments from all across Canada fought side-by-side to secure victory using an innovative tactic known as a creeping barrage.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Tony Bianco features the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in Vimy, France flanked by a First World War soldier on the left and a veteran soldier on the right.

Each pack includes five 2-dollar coins in a special commemorative packaging.
