Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Vimy: a defining moment for Canada. For the first time in history, the four divisions of the Canadian Corps came together and fought side-by-side as one, giving way to a surging sense of national identity on the battlefield and at home. This fine silver coin commemorates the centennial of a pivotal chapter in Canada’s history, the Battle of Vimy Ridge, through this reproduction of a battle painting by Canada’s first official war artist. Commemorates the 100th anniversary of The Battle of Vimy Ridge, a key battle for Canadian forces during the First World War.

The reverse features a highly detailed, magnificently engraved recreation of the large-sized oil painting The Taking of Vimy Ridge, Easter Monday, 1917. The coin’s large diameter (76 mm) is the perfect canvas for such a detailed reproduction of this unforgettable work by Canada’s first official war artist, Richard Jack. By focusing on a Canadian battery, the design captures the intensity of the heavy shelling directed towards enemy positions on Vimy Ridge, which forms the raised horizon in the background. The crew of the 18-pounder field gun work tirelessly and in unison as they pass shells to keep up the barrage—a fitting depiction of Canada’s troops coming together to fight as one. Engraved overhead is the word “CANADA” above the commemoratives dates “1917-2017”, while the face value “100 DOLLARS” is engraved beneath the soldiers’ feet. The obverse features the effigy of King George V by Sir Edward B. MacKennal, as used on Canadian coins in the First World War period.

A highly artistic and beautifully crafted addition to any military or history-themed collection, and an inspiring tribute to Canada’s combatants—both then and now.
