This November 11th marks the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice, the ceasefire that brought an end to the First World War (1914–1918). Canada will forever remember the Armistice of 1918 as the culmination of four years of exceptional valour and sacrifice that stretched from the Ypres Salient to Vimy Ridge, and from Passchendaele to Mons, where the end of the hostilities birthed the beginning of a young nation’s desire to never forget.

More than 650,000 Canadian and Newfoundland soldiers marched into the First World War and paved the way to peace. Keep the memory of their dedication and courage alive with the 2018 Armistice pure silver coin, from the Royal Canadian Mint, for $34.95 with free shipping.

The 2018 Armistice Pure Silver limited-edition coin, captured in pure silver, conveys a deep meaning for the Armistice. Its reverse design shows the image of a lone soldier, his head bowed, capturing the sense of loss, sacrifice, and exhaustion felt when combat ended; and the poppy, the most iconic symbol of remembrance.

This special issue coin is an expression of our nation’s gratitude for peace — a memento to honour the legacy of those who have served Canada and Newfoundland during the First World War, and whose contributions we collectively remember every November 11th. Hold the moment.
