The Battle of Hong Kong started on December 8, 1941 and ended on Christmas Day that same year. The Canadian troops were tasked with defending the British Crown Colony from Japanese naval, air, and ground forces. These coins were created in 2016 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of this triumphant battle.


On the obverse, you will see the image of King George VI, who is the father of Queen Elizabeth II. In this image, he is shown in left-profile relief. The image is the same as the one that would have been on Canadian coinage during World War II when this battle was fought.


The reverse face of each of these coins bears the image of two Canadian soldiers fighting among the Allied forces in the Battle of Hong Kong in World War II. During this battle, Canadians and the other Allied troops were fighting against amphibious and aerial forces from the Japanese military.


The Royal Canadian Mint opened in 1908; today, the mint is responsible for creating coinage for the country. There are currently operations in both Ottawa and Winnipeg.
