2007 Canada $30 National War Memorials - Vimy Ridge Memorial

Considered one of Canada's greatest achievements of the war, the victory at Vimy Ridge is memorialized in a commanding monument designed by Canadian sculptor and architect Walter Seymour Allward. The pylons represent Canada and France and at 27 m (88.5 ft) tall, dominate the site. In various locations throughout the memorial, twenty massive statues convey symbolic messages of peace, justice and gallantry while the names of Canadian soldiers who lost their lives in France and have no known grave are engraved in the monument's walls. The memorial was originally unveiled in 1936 and underwent a major restoration project prior to its rededication in 2007, on the 90th anniversary of victory at Vimy Ridge. The reverse design features one of the statues of the Canadian National Vimy Memorial. Entitled, "Canada, a young nation mourning her fallen sons," it depicts a forlorn woman dressed in robes. The background is representative of the lists of names that are found at the site.
