2015 $20 First World War Battlefront - The Second Battle of Ypres Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt) 140830

On April 22, 1915, near the Belgian town of Ypres, the First Canadian Division would participate in its first major engagement of the First World War. But the day would mark another, more tragic first: it would be the scene of the first large-scale gas attack on the battlefield. Amidst the horrors of the chlorine gas attack on the Allies, Canada's reputation as a nation began to be forged on the battlefield through the dedication, courage and resilience of its soldiers. With this coin, the Royal Canadian Mint pays tribute to their sacrifice and bravery by commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Second Battle of Ypres.
