2006 Canada Proof Double Dollar Set with Gold Plated Silver Dollar

From the cascabels of Russian cannons that were captured during the Crimean War (1854-1855), a great military honor is forged. It is the Victoria Cross, the highest military decoration that is awarded in Canada. For most conspicuous bravery, or some daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice, or extreme devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy.

Instituted by Queen Victoria in 1856, a total of 1,351 Victoria Crosses have been awarded to the British and commonwealth military forces. Ninety-four of them have been awarded to Canadians for acts of bravery carried out prior to and during the South African War (1899-1902); 70 First World War (1914-1918); and 16 during the Second World War (1939-1945).

The Victoria Cross is one of the most recognized military medals in the world. It features a cross Pattee with the royal crown surrounded by a lion guardant and a scroll inscribed with "For Valore". The date of the act is engraved within a raised circle on the reverse. The cross is suspended from a straight bar which has the rank, unit, and name of the recipient engraved on the back. In 1993, a special Canadian version was instituted. It is identical to the original with the exception that the inscription on the scroll is in Latin (pro valour).
