Why order this Proof 70 Colorized Proof 2017 Canada $20 1 oz. Silver Canadian Honours: Sacrifice Medal?

This $20 Canadian 2017 1 oz. Silver Colorized Proof Canadian Honours: Sacrifice Medal honors those who were wounded or killed in the Battle of Vimy Ridge, when many say that Canada forged its national identity. This coin, which was struck from .9999 fine silver at the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM), is part of a mintage of 5,500 pieces. The coin will arrive in its original government packaging, which includes an RCM-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box. Also included will be a serialized certificate.

Mournful Canada design

Like nearly all other Canadian coins, this one features Susanna Blunt's right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. The monarch's name and title, "ELIZABETH II D.G. REGINA" (Elizabeth II, by the grace of God, Queen) and the coin's face value, "20 DOLLARS," are inscribed along the rim.

The reverse image reproduces the Sacrifice Medal. That medal features an image of the "Canada" statue that stands at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France. The figure has her face downward, symbolizing isolation and loneliness. Atop the medal is the Royal Crown, which represents the Queen's status as the Head of State and leader of the armed forces. Color is used to recreate the ribbon's black and red stripes, which symbolize mourning and spilled blood.
