Description

The entire Proof Set is struck in 99.99% Fine Silver. The $1 and $2 are gold plated, while selective gold plating enhances the design of the Proof Dollar. This beautifully detailed coin commemorates the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. A couple's emotional farewell at a train station, where the first wave of volunteers is boarding a train bound for the Valcartier camp. Time stands still for this couple as they savour one last embrace before his departure, both of them uncertain of the future that lies ahead. It is a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by those who answered the call of duty, and their loved ones who remained on the home front. Five different finishes and world-class engraving bring added dimension to this image by Canadian artist Bonnie Ross. "We stand shoulder to shoulder with Britain..." - Prime Minister Robert Borden, August 19, 1914
