Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Here we have a truly special and heartfelt coin, created in remembrance and reverence of the declaration of the First World War-particularly in memory of the members of the First Contingent of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. Calgary-born, Montreal-based artist Maskull Lasserre has rendered a powerful image of the daunting uncertainty that many members of this contingent must have faced as they boarded a ship set for England in 1914. Offering an uncommon perspective, the solider is seen striding forward from behind, intimately implicating the viewer as the next person to board the waiting ship. The 99.99% pure silver of the coin almost acts as what would have been the stark-white October sky as this unknown man walks towards an unpredictable future. Possibly fear, possibly excitement settles into his bones like the chill of autumn air. This coin is an affordable and unique way to remember an integral moment in Canadian history, and pays tribute to the awesome sacrifice of these young men.
