2017 Canada $20 Sacrifice Medal - Canadian Honours Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt) 157648

In war, triumph often comes with sacrifice and loss—a sentiment embodied by the mournful statue “Canada” found at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial. On the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, this fine silver coin re-creates the Sacrifice Medal and pays tribute to the members of the Canadian Armed Forces who, like many who fought at Vimy in 1917, have been wounded by hostile action or have died as a result of their military service.
