2020 5-cent The Canadian Home Front: The Victory Nickel Bronze Coin

In 1943 - two years before the Second World War ended - a hopeful portent appeared on the Canadian home front. There, the country's sacrifices and resolve were represented in this message: We Win When We Work Willingly. These words were wrought in Morse code on the Victory nickel entering circulation. And this coded message is reproduced on this 5-cent Bronze Coin - The Canadian Home Front: The Victory Nickel.

The coin depicts the celebrated Victory design by Thomas Shingles as it appeared first on Canada's five-cent coins released between 1943 and 1945. A flaming torch symbolizes the sacrifices that were made by Canadians at home and on the battlefields during World War II.

Special Features:
• Struck again: Canada’s famous Victory nickel is brought back to life on this modern tribute to the design and the artist.
• A bronze take that covers two different variations. The use of a bronze alloy is a nostalgic nod to the tombac version of the Victory nickel (1943-44), while the specimen finish has a similar look to the steel version (1944-45).
• As faithful to the original as possible. With the exception of a modern alloy, an updated bilingual coded message and a much larger size, this collectible piece of history is the culmination of our painstaking attempts to remain faithful to the original design introduced in 1943.

Burgundy clamshell with black beauty box.
