Description

From the soldiers in the trenches to the nurses near the frontlines, risking one’s life to save another is the very definition of heroism. The reverse of this fourth and last coin in the First World War: Allies series pays homage to the men and women who served in the British Armed Forces, represented by the goldplated General Service button.

This 2018 $20 fine silver coin weighs one ounce of pure silver and has a limited mintage of just 5,000. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The reverse image by Canadian artist Pandora Young travels to a field hospital located near the front during the First World War. While the pointed peaks of medical tents can be seen in the background, the presence of several stretcherbearers and other personnel suggest a battle is underway and casualties are arriving from the frontlines. Special finishes place the focus on the British nurse in the foreground, whose quick movements reflect a sense of urgency; keeping pace with the stretcherbearers, her gaze is fixed on the wounded soldier as she quickly assesses his condition while providing words of comfort. The engraved image is paired with the goldplated General Service button. The selectively goldplated obverse features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. Mackennal.
