2018 (1918-) Canadian $1 Armistice of the First World War 100th Anniv Proof Silver Dollar Coin (Special Edition)
Face Value: $1
Composition: 99.99% Silver
Weight (g): 23.17
Diameter (mm): 36.07
November 11, 1918: A date synonymous with peace and remembrance in the minds of Canadians. On that day 100 years ago, the armistice signed near Compiègne, France, went into effect at 11 a.m., marking the end of hostilities and unleashing a wave of relief across a world that was thirsting for peace after four long, devastating years of war. We commemorate the centennial of the Armistice of 1918 with a symbolic celebration of peace. The selectively gold-plated reverse of our 2018 Special Edition Proof Dollar harkens back to coins from that era, with a classically styled design featuring peace laurels and Corinthian-styled columns that form the number “11”—a number that carries great historical weight here as a group of three, to represent the moment when a great silence fell over the battlefields of the First World War.
Commemorate the centennial of the Armistice of 1918 with a symbolic celebration of peace. Order today.
HOMAGE TO PEACE: Your coin commemorates the centennial of the Armistice of 1918, or, more specifically, the moment the battlefields of the First World War suddenly went silent.
TRIBUTE TO OUR COMBATANTS: Anchoring the peace laurels, the maple leaf pays homage to all Canadian and Newfoundlander combatants, whose courage and sacrifices are on the minds of Canadians each year on November 11, during a moment of silence observed at 11 a.m.
CLASSIC LOOK: The classically styled design channels the spirit of a nation at that moment in time, and harkens back to the coins of the era.
SELECTIVELY GOLD PLATED: A touch of gold plating creates an elegant contrast, further enhancing an already eye-catching design.
MODERN FINISHES: Against the luminous proof background, the engraved elements are brought to life by multiple finishes that add emotional weight to each symbolic element—from the radiant rays of hope to the towering “11” columns, and the emblem of our combatants.
INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
PURE SILVER! Your coin is crafted from 99.99% pure silver and includes selective gold plating.
GST/HST EXEMPT! Your coin is GST/HST exempt.
Harkening back to the coins of the era, your coin’s design by artist Jamie Desrochers channels a nation’s spirit in 1918 while paying tribute to the hour, day and month that the Armistice went into effect. The numeral “11” appears three times to represent the eleventh hour, the eleventh day and the eleventh month: November 11, 11 a.m., or the exact moment the guns fell silent. Backed by rays of hope that fill the field, the selectively gold-plated “11” resembles Corinthian-styled columns rising up from atop a grand staircase, with an overall form that faintly echoes the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France. Peace laurels symbolize the Armistice and the ensuing peace, while the gold-plated maple leaf proudly pays homage to the Canadian and Newfoundlander combatants of the First World War. Framed by the gold-plated rim, the reverse also includes the engraved word “CANADA”, the commemorative dates “1918–2018” and the face value “DOLLAR”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
