The first coin in your subscription depicts Canadian soldiers in action during the Battle of Neuve-Chapelle. In the centre, an 18-pounder field gun is manned by three Canadian gunners; billowing clouds fill the air to the right, from the ongoing bombardment, while ammunition on the ground to the left are a reminder of the constant nature of the initial artillery attack. Behind them, a sergeant stands and observes the accuracy of the shot's trajectory through binoculars. The lower portion of this poignant image is framed by a banner; in its centre, selective gold plating showcases the winged figure of "Victory," as it appeared on the Victory Medal that was awarded to the allied soldiers of the First World War. The effigy of King George V, who was the reigning monarch at the time, is found on the obverse.

This subscription depicts scenes from key battles in which Canadians bravely participated during the First World War. Order yours today!

    Hi,
    I love the first two coins that I received however, the Mint is a bit misleading as nowhere in the description does it state that this is a multi year collection. Also, I recently received an email stating that the shipping of the collection was done so I'm not sure if I will actually get the rest of the coins.

    Other than that, the collection looks great so far.

      Again, set without collection box. Mintage?...unlimited. This coin will be broken up and sold in numerous other sets to liquidate them, as is being done with WWII set. People pay excessive amounts for these coins, again only to be disappointed. Hey mint!...stick to a program...just once.

          Just received the first coin in the series and it looks great. They will be great to use as a teaching tools about Canadians in WW1 and some of the battles they were involved in.

              Hi Julie,

              We sell a solid wood coin display case that holds 24 coins (twelve 38mm coins and twelve 34mm coins). All of the coins in the '1 oz. Fine Silver Selectively Gold-Plated 8-Coin Subscription - First World War Battlefront' are 38mm so they would fit in this case. Here's the link to the coin display case product page;
