2014 Canadian $5 Canadian Expeditionary Force - Fine Silver Coin


The Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) is the designation for the Canadian forces that served overseas during the First World War. Far from their homeland, they helped build Canada's international reputation and contributed to Canada's coming of age as a nation. On the 100th anniversary of the declaration of the First World War, it is important to pay tribute to the contributions and sacrifices made by those brave Canadians – lest we forget.

Your beautifully detailed design commemorates the 100th anniversary of the declaration of the First World War and pays tribute to the Canadian Expeditionary Force, whose valour in battle helped Canada forge a national identity and move towards greater autonomy.

Design

In the background, a convoy of ships represent those who first delivered Canada to the war in 1914. The First World War was the last conflict to be uniquely defined by the foot soldier; therefore, the lone soldier in the foreground is particularly poignant. Already shaped by the battles of 1915, our soldier is kneeling with his right foot stretched past the circular image frame. He is pondering his journey as he looks out into the horizon where silhouettes of battle-weary soldiers march on in the distance – much as they did through to the final days of war in 1918. The Maple Leaf crest cap badge at the bottom of the image adds motifs linked to the CEF as a tribute to its contributions.


Packaging

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell box with a black beauty box.
