Description
 
We were allies in the trenches and, for the first time, in the skies. Accented with a gold-plated infantry insignia, our coin in our First World War Allies series reflects on France’s enormous sacrifices and triumphs on the Western Front during the First World War, where, barely a decade after the first flight, aviation played an increasing role in La der des der (“The war to end all wars”).

Special Features:
- A SPECIAL FOUR-COIN SERIES: As we approach of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of 11 November 1918, this series reflects on the wartime contributions of four of the many Allied forces that were united in a common cause, and bound by both heroism and duty.
-
FOUR ALLIES, ONE LAST PUSH: While Canadian and French forces fought in the trenches, Canadian airmen also served in the skies, where France’s escadrilles and fighter pilots were at the forefront of aircraft development.
-
THE IMAGE OF HOPE: The highly detailed reverse presents the view from the front lines, in a time when the novelty and risks of flight still inspired awe. Multiple finishes add a sense of depth to the scene, in which French troops-and the viewer-look up to see French aircraft flying overhead.
-
SELECTIVE GOLD PLATING: Like all coins in this limited series, selective gold plating highlights the infantry insignia of the French Army, an emblem that speaks of sacrifice and victory in battle, such as the Battle of Verdun in 1916 and at Amiens in 1918.
-
FOR KING AND COUNTRY: Selective gold plating also highlights the effigy of King George V on the obverse, which resembles that of all Canadian coins issued during the First World War.
-
COLLECT ALL 4 COINS FOR THE COMPLETE STORY! A touching memorial to all the combatants one that goes beyond borders to put a face on the Great War.

Standard maroon clamshell with black beauty box.
