2018 Canada $25 Lest We Forget Helmet Shaped Fine Silver Coin (No Tax)

In 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the guns finally fell silent across the Western Front. A century later, the Royal Canadian Mint commemorates the anniversary of the Armistice with its most unusual coin yet: a poignant symbol of remembrance shaped like the steel helmets worn by Canadian combatants in the First World War.

While the Canadian Expeditionary Force went to war in caps, steel helmets proved essential under the murderous artillery fire of the Western Front. The iconic "Brodie"-style helmet was worn throughout the British and Canadian Expeditionary Forces by mid-1916.

Special Features:
• ONE HUNDRED YEARS LATER, CANADA HAS NOT FORGOTTEN: To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the armistice and the end of the First World War, a symbol of soldiering becomes the ultimate representation of bravery. Of sacrifice. Or remembrance.
• ONE OF OUR MOST UNFORGETTABLE FIRSTS: Our FIRST extreme curvature coin is an exceptional feat of craftsmanship, with a more deeply curved surface than any other concave- or convex-shaped coin.
• ANTIQUE FINISH: On the reverse, the antique finish gives the coin an appropriately aged and distressed look, while the engraved “cracks” and “markings” complete the helmet’s battle-worn appearance - a reminder of the reality of war and the hardships endured by those who fought and hoped for peace.
• A POWERFUL TRIBUTE TO COURAGE AND SACRIFICE: The small-scale replica of the steel helmet worn by Canadian soldiers in the First World War is a heartfelt tribute to their legacy, echoed in the poppy-flanked words engraved along the brim: “LEST WE FORGET N’OUBLIONS JAMAIS”.

Packaging:
Maroon clamshell with black beauty box.
