Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 

On November 11, 1918 the guns finally fell silent as the Armistice agreement finally brought an end to the First World war (1914-1918). This special wrap roll includes 25 high quality uncirculated examples of a new commemorative coin issued to mark the centennial anniversary. The roll includes a mix of engraved only and coloured versions of the coin.

The commemorative $ design by Canadian artist Laurie McGaw presents a poignant pairing of two symbols of remembrance. Within the brass-plated inner core, a soldier’s helmet represents the end of the First World War and serves as a solemn reminder of the many lives lost during history’s first mechanized war. Below the helmet lies a large poppy, the official bloom of remembrance inspired by the Canadian poem In Flanders Fields, and whose bright scarlet colour is re-created on selectively coloured versions of the $2 coin.

To represent English and French, two more poppies are engraved on the nickel-plated outer ring, which includes a banner bearing the bilingual words “REMEMBER”, “SOUVENIR” and the year “2018”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
