Description
 
This coin was removed from the Proof Double Dollar Set. The Gold Plated dollar is only available in this set.

From the cascabels of Russian cannon that were captures during the Crimean War (1854-1855), a great military honor is forged. It is the Victoria Cross, the highest Military decoration that is awarded for most conscious 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 1,351 Victoria Crosses have been awarded to British and commonwealth Military forces. Ninety four of them have been awarded to Canadian ----8 For acts of bravery carried out prior to and during the South Africa war (1899-1902); during the 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 featured a cross pattee with the royal crown surrounded by a lion guardant And a scroll inscribed with for valour. 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 valoure).
