A striking feat of craftsmanship to mark the end of WWI

** Over 80% SOLD - Last few remaining **

Today you can own a remarkable silver coin commemorating the end of the First World War. This issue is one of a kind. The minting expertise required to strike such an impressive coin is astounding, we've never seen a coin like it.

There’s never been a coin like this one

It has been struck by The Royal Canadian Mint in .9999 or “four nines” silver, this is the purest grade of silver available for coins. Of course you’re first drawn to its most obvious feature, the shape. It’s an incredible miniature replica of the steel Brodie helmets worn by British and Commonwealth forces during the First World War.

Exceptional feat of craftsmanship

How the Mint achieved this result remains a closely guarded secret. It has a more deeply curved surface than any other concave or convex-shaped coin. There are even engraved cracks and markings you would find on an original helmet. The final antique finish gives an authentic distressed look, the fine detail is incredible.

Along the brim, the poignant words “LEST WE FORGET” are flanked by engraved poppies, whilst the two dates “1918” and “2018”, mark the centenary of the Armistice.
