This collectable set of two fine silver coins, jointly issued by the Royal Canadian Mint and the China Gold Coin Incorporation, honours Dr. Norman Bethune, who was born in Gravenhurst, Ontario in 1890 and served humanity during three wars. Bethune was a Canadian thoracic surgeon, and an early advocate of socialized medicine. He is best known for developing mobile medical units, surgical instruments, and a method for transporting blood for transfusions. In 1938, Bethune went to China to become Chief Surgeon for the Eighth Route Army during the Sino-Japanese War. Bethune helped bring modern medicine to rural China, treating both sick villagers and wounded soldiers.

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