Description

2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. The historic design on this pure silver $10 proof coin is entitled “The Mobilisation of Our Nation”. Mintage is 40,000 coins. HST/GST exempt.

 

The Design:

Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Maskull Lasserre. It features a rear view of a Canadian soldier as he embarks on a ship bound for England. The chill of the October air does little to slow our soldier’s confident pace, as he makes his way up the roped gangway and onto the steel ship with his equipment and rifle. This unique rear view perspective immerses the viewer in the event, as though he is next in line behind our soldier, and is making his way up the same gangway. Many more would board these ships, which would transport the First Canadian Contingent to Plymouth in October 1914.  The word “Canada” and the date “2014” as well as the denomination “10 Dollars” can be seen around the rim of the coin.
