2017 Canada $20 WWI Battlefront - The Battle of Vimy Ridge (NO tax)

In the spring of 1917, the Allies launched a new offensive on the Western Front, where all four divisions of the Canadian Corps were ordered to capture the heavily fortified Vimy Ridge. For the first time ever, regiments from all across Canada fought side-by-side to secure victory using an innovative tactic known as a creeping barrage. This fine silver coin honours the Canadians at Vimy, where their valour and sacrifice contributed to a defining moment for our young nation and its military.
