Why should you choose to add this Proof 70 2017 Canada First World War Battlefront Series - Battle of Vimy Ridge 1 oz. Silver Gilt Proof $20 Coin to your collection?
Struck at the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) in 2017, this coin stands as the fifth release in a set commemorating Canada's contribution to the First World War. More specifically the coin honors those who fought and died in the Battle of Vimy Ridge, a bloody but defining event in Canada's military history. This coin composed of 1 oz. of .9999 fine silver was struck with a proof finish and is selectively plated, or "gilt," with 24-karat gold.
Designed in commemoration of the heroic deeds of Canadian soldiers
In close attention to detail, the obverse has been struck with a gold-plated effigy of King George. He was the reigning monarch during the First World War.
The focal point of the reverse is a Canadian soldier. This soldier has been left faceless to represent all those who fought and sacrificed themselves in the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Gold plating has been arranged throughout the image creating a visually appealing design for a pivotal moment in Canada's history.
