By Royal Canadian Mint | Wednesday, August 8, 2018

The following products can be bought at the Royal Canadian Mint website.

  • $20 Fine Silver Coin – A Nation's Mettle: The Dieppe Raid, among many other memorable keepsakes this month. Illustrated by accomplished coin designer Laurie McGaw, this outstanding collectible depicts the reflection of a contemporary veteran saluting the fallen, reflected in the water receding from the beach at Dieppe, France. The coin serves as a reminder of the many Canadian soldiers lost or captured in the fateful Second World War operation on August 19, 1942. The juxtaposition of the past and present also pays tribute to those Canadian veterans who dutifully commemorate those sacrifices every August at Dieppe, New Brunswick.
  • $20 Fine Silver Coin – First World War Battlefront Series: Canada's Hundred Days. Joel Kimmel's illustration of soldiers overlooking the makeshift grave of a comrade buried amidst the rubble of a devastated town symbolizes the sacrifice of Canadians who fought costly but successful battles, from Amiens to Mons, in the last 100 days of the First World War.
  • $20 Fine Silver Coin – First World War Allied Forces: France, artist Pandora Young has captured the hope and determination of French ground forces, with fellow airmen flying above, as they make their final push to victory in the closing months of the war.
