This 2 ounce pure gold collectable coin commemorates the 75th anniversary of the declaration of the Second World War and features two Canadian machine gunners in training. The economic hardships of the Great Depression had left Canada's military undermanned and unprepared for the onset of war. Thanks to a national recruitment drive, over 58,000 men and women enlisted by the month's end. In December, units of the 1st Canadian Infantry Division set sail from Halifax to Britain making up the first wave of Canadians who would serve overseas until the war's end in 1945. Thousands of airplanes, ships, vehicles, guns and ammunition would be produced by factories in Canada, which became the fourth largest supplier among the Allied countries.  

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