One hundred years after Calgarians chose to dedicate the greatest outdoor show on earth to Canada's returning First World War soldiers, the Mint has issued a new silver coin commemorating the historic Victory Stampede of 1919, the company said.

Calgary artist Michelle Grant's design on the reverse of this 99.99% pure silver coin captures the excitement of the roping competition, which was one of many rodeo events on the Victory Stampede program. The 57,000 spectators in attendance on the last week of August 1919, were regaled by cowboys and cowgirls showing off their skills in bronco riding, fancy roping, trick riding, relay races and more. Building on the success of that historic event, the Calgary Stampede became an annual tradition.

The 2019 USD 20 Fine Silver Coin -- Victory Stampede has a limited mintage of 6,500 and retails for USD 119.95.

The Mint is also returning to Calgary for the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association's 2019 convention, from July 18 to 20, 2019, where the Victory Stampede coin and other fine collectibles will be showcased and sold.

The Royal Canadian Mint is the Crown corporation responsible for the minting and distribution of Canada's circulation coins. The Mint is recognized as one of the largest and most versatile mints in the world, offering a wide range of specialized, high quality coinage products and related services on an international scale.
