The Royal Canadian Mint is paying homage to Canada’s fallen with a special coin now in circulation for the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
The $2 dollar coin depicts two soldiers standing on either side of an image of the Vimy memorial in France.
Canadian troops secured a hard-fought victory at Vimy Ridge in April 1917. Nearly 11,000 Canadians died in the battle.
