Speaking of Canadian coins and commemoratives and battles....I wouldn't mind having an example of the Canadian 5 cent coin that commemorates Vimy Ridge.  Haven't looked in a while to see what they sell for these days.

Dale,is that Canadian 5c. found in circulation,or is one of those Proof-only medal-coins? There's a great bunch of guys on http://www.freepowerboards.com/worldcoins ,of whom some are interested in Canadian coins.

Dale,
  It's a bummer that all the good designs nowadays are put only on a Proof-only medal-coin,yet,most of the designs that are put on a circulating commemorative coin in Canada are rubbish.

I agree with you.  I generally don't buy toooooooo many NCLT coins but like all my rules, there are exceptions.  I like that design, simply, graphic and emotionally evocative.
