Product Description

Canada: 2018 $20 The Armistice of Compiègne 1 oz. Pure Silver Selectively Gold-Plated Coin

Design: The reverse commemorates the centennial of the armistice signed near Compiègne, France, on November 11, 1918—an agreement that ended the fighting across the Western Front. The image is a gold-plated reproduction of the winged figure of Victory by sculptor William McMillan (1887-1977), whose design graced the obverse of the Victory Medal issued within the British Empire in 1919. The full-length view of this classic-styled allegory finds Victory standing with her left arm raised, her right hand holding a palm branch; behind her, engraved rays that represent hope for a peaceful future fill the field and heighten the luminous nature of the sculpted design. The reverse includes the words “CANADA” engraved above the figure, along with the double dates “1918 – 2018” that mark the centennial, and the bilingual “title” of this final chapter in the story of Canada on the battlefields of the First World War.
