date synonymous with peace and remembrance. The 2018 Special Edition Proof Dollar commemorates the centennial of the Armistice of 1918 with a classically styled celebration of peace, one that speaks of hope re-awakening in the aftermath of a war that ultimately shaped the 20th century.

Harkening back to the coins of the era, the reverse design by artist Jamie Desrochers channels a nationÕs spirit in 1918 while paying tribute to the hour, day and month that the Armistice went into effect. The numeral Ò11Ó appears three times to represent the eleventh hour, the eleventh day and the eleventh month: November 11, 11 a.m., or the exact moment the guns fell silent. Backed by rays of hope that fill the field, the selectively gold-plated Ò11Ó resembles Corinthian-styled columns rising up from atop a grand staircase, with an overall form that faintly echoes the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France. Peace laurels symbolize the Armistice and the ensuing peace, while the gold-plated maple leaf proudly pays homage to the Canadian and Newfoundlander combatants of the First World War. Framed by the gold-plated rim, the reverse also includes the engraved word ÒCANADAÓ, the commemorative dates Ò1918 Ð 2018Ó and the face value, ÒDOLLARÓ. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

The reverse commemorates the centennial of the Armistice of 1918, or, more specifically, the moment the battlefields of the First World War suddenly went silent.
