Before we were one nation, we were brothers-in-arms. The second coin in our First World War Allies series highlights Newfoundland’s wartime contributions as an independent dominion during the First World War. Paired with an image that defines heroism, the gold-plated insignia of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment speaks of valour and sacrifice in places like Monchy-Le-Preux and Beaumont-Hamel.

Special Features:
• SECOND IN A FOUR-COIN SERIES: As we approach the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of 11 November 1918, this four-coin series reflects on the wartime contributions of select Allied forces who were united in a common cause and bound by heroism and duty.
• FOUR ALLIES, ONE LAST PUSH: Like Canada, Newfoundland was an independent dominion during the First World War; the second coin in our First World War Allies series highlights the tremendous wartime contributions and sacrifices of Newfoundlanders.
• THE IMAGE OF HEROISM: The scene on the reverse features an outstanding amount of engraved details! Multiple finishes add a sense of depth to a poignant design, which showcases the courageous spirit of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment in the trenches that were a defining experience of the Great War.
• SELECTIVE GOLD PLATING: Like all coins in this limited series, selective gold plating adds a fitting gleam to the regimental insignia of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment.
• FOR KING AND COUNTRY: Selective gold plating also highlights the effigy of King George V; otherwise, the obverse resembles that of all Canadian coins issued during the First World War.
