P.E.I. Military Hero - Georgina Pope

Georgina_Pope.jpgA new five dollar silver coin has been minted to commemorate one of the daughters of Confederation. Georgina Pope was born in 1862 to William Pope and his wife and she grew up on an estate in Charlottetown.   But she found her calling as a military nurse and served with distinction around the world.  To hear more about this remarkable Islander's story, historian Boyde Beck joined Matt in the studio.

To find out more about the commemorative coins,  you can go to the Canadian Mint's website at mint.ca.
