Regular price $103.00

This one ounce fine silver collectable coin pays tribute to the bravery and resolve of the Canadian soldiers during the Second World War throughout the Battle of Hong Kong. Canada's first land combat of the Second World War began on December 8, 1941, when, mere hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Japanese launched an invasion on the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong. Outnumbered and less well equipped than the enemy, the odds were not in the Canadians' favor as they defended the peninsula, then the island itself. Over 550 of the 1,975 Canadians sent to Hong Kong never made it home; but during the 17 days of fierce fighting, they fought valiantly, even engaging in hand-to-hand combat with the enemy, as they defended Hong Kong to the very end. 

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