2016 Canada $20 Second World War Battlefront Series - The Battle of Hong Kong Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt)

Outnumbered and less equipped than the enemy, the odds were not in the Canadians' favour in December 1941 as they fought valiantly to defend the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong until the very end. On the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Hong Kong, this fine silver coin pays tribute to the bravery and resolve of these courageous Canadian soldiers, whose sacrifices remind us of the tragic cost of war.
