The World War Two Propaganda Coin

This original Victory Nickel was first struck in 1943 during the Second World War by the Canadians as a piece of pure propaganda.

A Flaming Torch and “V” for Victory dominates the design, whilst the morse code message on the coin’s rim reads “We win when we work willingly”.

If you look closely at the photo on the left you will see the Morse code message just inside the bead of the coin on the reverse.

The coin was in fact the only coin in the Commonwealth whose design reflected the fact that the nation was at war. Used by service men and women, as well as those at home, it reminded people of the war effort. 

We have a limited quantity available of these coins so don't miss your chance to add a genuine Canadian Victory Nickel to your collection today.
