They are the fallen: the more than 66,000 from Canada and Newfoundland who gave their lives fighting for peace during the First World War. Strongly influenced by the era’s one-cent circulation coin, this 10-ounce tribute piece honours their memory through a seldom-seen view of the Angel of Victory statue, which was erected in three Canadian cities as a memorial to those lost in the “war to end all wars.”

A symbolic gift for those in the military or as tribute to loved ones lost at war. Order today.


Special features:
HISTORY IN HAND: A thought-provoking tribute to peace, and a memorial to Canada’s fallen combatants of the First World War.
A CANADIAN MEMORIAL: Your large-sized coin (76 mm) features a seldom-seen view of any of the three Angel of Victory statues erected in Montreal, Winnipeg and Vancouver after the war.
FROM THEIR HANDS TO YOURS: Channeling the spirit of 1918, your coin was strongly influenced by the one-cent coin in circulation between 1858 and 1920. The maple leaf wreath is a contemporary take on the penny’s maple vine, while the inner and outer ring of dots were kept intact from the original design. It’s an added homage to a coin that was quite possibly a token from home for many Canadians who served overseas!
ATTENTION TO DETAIL: Every design element has been painstakingly engraved in outstanding detail
EXQUISITE CRAFTSMANSHIP: While the mirror-like proof finish adds a luminous quality, multiple finishing techniques ensure every element of this complex design is made visible.
PRESTIGIOUS: Crafted from 10 oz. of 99.99% pure silver, your coin has a very low mintage of 750 worldwide and is GST/HST exempt.
A STANDOUT PIECE: A meticulously crafted piece with special significance and high appeal for military or history-themed collectors, or all who seek to honour and preserve the memory of those who never returned from the war.
INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.

Design:
To mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of Compiègne (November 11, 1918), your coin’s image by Pandora Young brings together several design elements that are rooted in history. The design’s focal point is a rarely seen overhead view of the Angel of Victory statue, one of three identical bronze memorials created by Montreal-based sculptor Coeur de Lion MacCarthy. Here, the statue is a powerful reminder of the human cost of the war, embodied by the fallen Canadian combatant held by an ascending angel, who also holds a laurel wreath in her left hand. The two figures overlap the frame, which was inspired by Canada’s one-cent circulation coin at the time of the First World War (1914 -1918); a wreath of 16 maple leaves represents a contemporary twist on the maple vine design seen on all Canadian pennies between 1858 and 1920, while two rings of dots – one with 100 dots, the other with 140 – are kept intact from W.H.J. Blakemore’s classic design. The reverse includes the word “CANADA”, the double commemorative dates “1918 – 2018” and the face value “100 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. MacKennal.

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