2018 Canada $100 100th Anniversary of the First World War Armistice - Angel of Victory 10oz. Fine Silver (No Tax)

Signed in 1918 'on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleven month,' the Armistice of Compiegne put an end to hostilities during the First World War. Sadly, more than 66,000 men and women from Canada and Newfoundland lost their lives in the war: to honour their memory, this 10 oz. fine silver coin commemorates the centennial of the Armistice with a powerful reverse that speaks of a nation’s pride and grief, and reminds us of the cost of this 'war to end all wars.'

Special Features:
• A thought-provoking tribute to peace, and a memorial to Canada's fallen combatants of the First World War.
• The large-sized reverse (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.
• Channelling the spirit of 1918, the reverse 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!
• Crafted from 10 oz. of 99.99% pure silver, your coin has a very low mintage of 750 worldwide.
• 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.

Packaging:
Maroon clamshell with black beauty box.
