VICTORY NICKEL: THE CANADIAN HOMEFRONT
While the end of the Second World War was still two years away, 1943 brought a hopeful shift that was fuelled in part by Canada’s effort on the home front, where our sacrifices and resolve were represented by a coded message on a new 5-cent coin: We Win When We Work Willingly.
