2018 Canada $20 First World War Battlefront Series – Armistice of Compiègne Fine Silver (No Tax)

At 11 a.m. on the morning of November 11, 1918, the battlefields suddenly fell silent after four calamitous years that changed Canada forever. This fine silver coin concludes the Royal Canadian Mint’s First World War: Battlefront series; its reverse features a final, powerful tribute to the Canadian and Newfoundlander combatants of the Great War: the winged figure from the 1919 Victory Medal, which has followed us on every step of this collectible journey through a war that shaped the 20th century.

Special Features:
• Final coin in our First World War: Battlefront Series, a multi-year chronicle of Canada’s role on the battlefields of the First World War.
• A unifying tribute: Previous coins in this eight-coin series all featured the winged figure from the 1919 Victory Medal as a design flourish; here, its gold-plated, sculpted beauty highlights the legacy of those who bravely served in a war that transformed Canada and shaped the 20th century.
• Exquisite details: Slightly larger than the bronze-cast Victory Medal, this fine silver coin combines modern engraving techniques and finishes to bring the classic-styled allegory to life.
• Features a historic effigy: Like all Canadian coins minted between 1914 and 1918, the coins in this retrospective series feature the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. MacKennal, but with a touch of selective gold plating to add a golden shine.
• A packaged timeline: The beauty box for this coin is the final piece to complete the set! When all eight coins are placed spine to spine, the boxes provide a timeline of the major Canadian battles of the First World War.
