2020 Classic Canadian Coin and Medallion Fine Silver Set (No Tax)

Now in its third year, the Royal Canadian Mint's coin and medallion set is the only annual set to feature Canada's circulation coin designs in colour and in 99.99% pure silver. You'll find those classic designs in the 2020 edition but the 5-cent coin is an exclusive colourized tribute to Thomas Shingles' Victory nickel. Shingles originally engraved the design on the medallion too: it's a faithful reproduction of the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal, which was awarded to more than 650,000 Canadians in recognition of their voluntary service in the Second World War. This set perfectly embodies the nation's spirit in 1945 and in 2020, as we honour those who contributed to the Allied victory 75 years ago.

This medallion is a faithful reproduction of the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal (1939-1947) and features the obverse design by Charles Comfort. The seven marching figures represent the Royal Canadian Navy, Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service, 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion, Canadian Women's Army Corps, Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), RCAF Women's Division, and Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps. Around the rim is the inscription "1939 CANADA 1945 VOLUNTARY SERVICE VOLONTAIRE". The reverse features the Arms of Canada, as seen on the original medal.

• Both the Victory nickel and the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal were engraved by Thomas Shingles, former Master Engraver at the Royal Canadian Mint.
• The medallion in this set features a brilliant uncirculated finish that is true to the actual medal.
• All six denominations come in their standard size. These coins have been struck at a lower speed than your typical circulation coins the result is a stunning, mirror like proof finish that plays up the colour.
