This fine silver two coin collectable set enhanced with gold plating honours the thousands of Chinese railway workers who built the railway through western Canada. To persuade British Columbia to come into the fold of Confederation in 1871, Canada promised to build a transcontinental link by rail to join the commerce of the east to that of the west. No easy feat, the massive project of the Canadian Pacific Railway entailed cutting through mountains and building bridges to cross rivers and valleys. Thousands of Chinese workers toiled hard to help build the Canadian Pacific Railway through the Rocky Mountains of western Canada during the 19th century. Between 1880 and 1885 many of these workers lost their lives in the process of construction. 

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
