The efforts of the Canadian Armed Forces divisions over 100 years ago at the Battle of Vimy Ridge, where all four Canadian Divisions fought side-by-side, is embodied by the mournful statue "Canada" found at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial. This fine silver coloured collectable coin honours these individuals who sacrificed so much. 

Fittingly, the statue's likeness graces the reverse of the Sacrifice Medal, awarded to members of the Canadian Armed Forces who, like many a brave soul who fought at Vimy, have been wounded by hostile action or have died as a result of their service to their country working to secure peace in their time. The figure's solemn expression of grief is a silent but powerful representation of a nation's remembrance and recognition of lives lost or broken by conflict.

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