Top Canadian Bank Issues Special Commemorative Silver Coin To Mark Vaisakhi





Toronto, Ontario, Canada

To celebrate Vaisakhi, one of Canada’s largest banks, The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (“CIBC”), is thrilled to offer Canadians a limited edition, one-of-a-kind pure silver coin to commemorate one of the most important observances in the Sikh religion this year.

Every April, Vaisakhi, traditionally seen as a harvest festival, is celebrated by millions of Sikhs and Punjabis around the world. It recognizes the creation of the Khalsa fellowship by Guru Gobind Singh, the 10th Sikh Master.

"CIBC is proud to join Sikh-Canadians in celebrating Vaisakhi with our specially made silver coin and in upcoming parade festivities," said the Managing Director and Head, Alternate Solutions Group and Retail Solutions Group, CIBC. "On behalf of the team at CIBC, I wish everyone a joyous Vaisakhi!"

The 1 oz. silver Vaisakhi coin, illustrating the symbols of Ik Onkar and The Khanda, is certified to be 99.99 percent fine silver and was minted exclusively for CIBC.

Retailing for $59.95, this limited edition coin can be ordered online or in any CIBC Banking Center.

This year, CIBC is supporting the Vaisakhi Day parades, including the highly attended parades in Surrey, British Columbia (held on April 23, with a record 350,000 attendance this year) and in the Greater Toronto Area on May 1, as well as in Calgary and Montreal later in May.
