Request information

In April 1917, all four divisions of the Canadian Corps were ordered to capture the heavily fortified Vimy Ridge in northern France. This was the first engagement in which Canada's soldiers from coast-to-coast would fight side-by-side as one using innovative tactics. Those forces secured a hard-fought victory that earned them a reputation as a formidable opponent on the western front, while inspiring a nation's sense of pride and unity. This was one of Canada's finest hours during the First World War—but it came at a cost of nearly 11,000 casualties.

Since 1936, an impressive national memorial has marked the site as a tribute to the Canadian soldiers who fought for the cause of peace and freedom during the First World War. The Royal Canadian Mint proudly commemorates the Canadians who served at Vimy Ridge—and throughout the First World War—with a powerful pure silver coin that showcases a poignant symbol of a nation's sacrifice, even in triumph.
