Why purchase this 2017 Canadian Honors: Cross of Valor Colorized Silver Proof?

The fourth design of the Royal Canadian Mint's (RCM) Canadian Honors Collection is dedicated to the 45th Anniversary of the Cross of Valor. Since 1972, the Cross of Valor has been awarded in recognition of an extreme act of courage. This commemorative coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver, measuring 40 mm in diameter. Mintage of the distinctive proof is limited to only 5,500 coins.

Spectacular, high contrast colorization

The reverse features a reproduction of the Cross of Valor, which is a maple leaf surrounded by a laurel wreath, at the center. This design was crafted by Bruce W. Beatty in 1972. Brilliant, translucent color is applied over the stylized engravings, creating a unique textural effect. It is inscribed above the design with the anniversary years "1972" and "2017," with "CANADA" below.

Designed by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt, the obverse depicts Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, encircled by "ELIZABETH II," "D. G. REGINA" and "20 DOLLARS."
