2018 Canada $20 First World War Battlefront Series - Canada's Hundred Days Fine Silver (No Tax)

A young nation's coming-of-age was never more evident than in the final months of the First World War. After hard-fought victories at Vimy and Passchendaele, the crowning glory of the Canadian Corps' battle achievements came in the summer and fall of 1918, when our troops played a front-line role in one last Allied offensive that finally brought an end to the four-year conflict.

They were Canada's Hundred Days: From August 8 to November 11, 1918, Canadian troops cemented their reputation as an elite fighting force with a string of costly victories that stretched from Amiens to Mons. The reverse of this commemorative coin reflects on Canada's great military successes and its sacrifices during those Hundred Days, the penultimate chapter in The Royal Canadian Mint's First World War: Battlefront series.

Special Features:
• Seventh coin in our First World War: Battlefront Series, and the penultimate coin in a multi-year chronicle of Canada's role on the battlefields of the First World War.
• To all that was won and all who were lost. The makeshift grave amid the rubble is a reminder of the personal sacrifices behind each battle victory during Canada's Hundred Days.
• Richly detailed. Modern engraving techniques and finishes bring this complex design to life and help set apart some of the smaller details that carry special meaning, including the flowers laid on the fallen soldier's grave.
• Selective gold plating puts special emphasis on the winged figure of "Victory," as depicted on the Victory Medal awarded to members of the Allied forces after the First World War.
• Like all Canadian coins minted between 1914 and 1918, the coins in this retrospective series feature the historic effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. Mackennal, but with a touch of selective gold plating to add a golden shine.
• Collect them all. Your coin is packaged in a specially designed beauty box that is unique to the Battlefront series! When placed spine-to-spine, your completed series stands as a visual timeline of Canada's major battles of the First World War.

Packaging:
Maroon clamshell with a graphic beauty box.
