In commemoration of the 72nd anniversary of the Battle of Scheldt, the Royal Royal Canadian Mint has released a brilliantly- designed 1 oz pure silver coin to mark this important occasion. This coin is the eighth release of the popular Second World War Battlefront Series. 

The reverse of the new coin features a realistic portrait of a Canadian Ojibwa soldier in action in the fall of 1944. The badge of the First Canadian Army appears above the infantryman, who wields a Bren gun while advancing past a tower mill. A Wasp MKII C flamethrower universal carrier backs the infantry advance from atop an embankment near the Scheldt River. The design of the coin captures the intensity of a battle in which every advance was a deadly struggle to seize the high ground.

The reverse includes the inscriptions "The battle of Scheldt" in both English and French and double dates "1944-2019".

The obverse of the coin displays an effigy of King George VI. It includes the monetary denomination of the coin, 20 dollars.

The battle of Scheldt marks deepened ties between Canada and the Netherlands after the histories of the two nations became entwined in the shores of the Scheldt River in World War II.

This beautiful coin is crafted in 99.99 pure silver with a proof finish. It has a limited mintage of only 7,500 pieces.
