A set of six coins to celebrate the APD’s 25 years of service is set to be released later this summer.

Abbotsford Police Department celebrating 25 years with coin project

Set of six commemorative coins to be released over the summer, free for kids aged five to 13

The Abbotsford Police Department is celebrating 25 years of service with a set of six commemorative coins.

The coins were designed for the APD by community members and showcase the themes of integrity, honour, courage, service, strength in community and leadership.

Youth aged five to 13 are eligible to collect the free coins.

Throughout the summer, APD will set up temporary drive-thru coin giveaway locations to hand out (implementing physical distancing and safe handling procedures) one theme coin per week.

Upon arriving at the coin giveaway location, vehicles will be directed to the first stop where each eligible youth in the vehicle will receive a unique postcard. An APD officer will stamp the postcard then direct the vehicle to the next station, where each youth with a postcard will receive a free coin.

Youth can collect only one of each coin, for a total of six, while supplies last. Kids and parents are reminded to bring the postcard each time they attend a coin giveaway location to receive a new stamp.

Kids who collect four or more coins can drop their stamped postcards off at APD headquarters for a special prize draw at the end of the summer. Stay tuned to APD social media to learn more about the collectible coin series, giveaway locations and the grand prize draw.
