A neat, low priced oddity for any coin collection, this 2005 Royal Canadian Mint set comprises a silver proof 5c coin together with a bronze medal - both issued to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of VE Day.

On the silver proof nickel, a large V to signify Victory in Europe during World War II; On the bronze medallion, the large V is offset by a member of each of the modern traditional military forces, Navy, Army, and Airforce.

On the obverse of both issues, a portrait of the reigning monarch of the time, George VI - which, in the case of the nickel, is quite stunning! A modern, Queen Elizabeth II commemorative, with the portrait of her father on the obverse!!!

Set in a commemorative tin, our entire stock is still sealed and unopened, more than 13 years after release!!!
