FIRST WORLD WAR ALLIED FORCES: CANADA. The First World War: Allies series reflects on the collaborative efforts of a republic, an empire and two of her dominions four of the many allies bound by duty and heroism throughout the war and during the Hundred Days Offensive. This first coin shines the spotlight on Canada and its cavalry, with a touch of gold plating on a special insignia that represents a young nations pride, accomplishments and sacrifices. The reverse image by Canadian artist Pandora Young places the viewer at the heart of the action on the Western Front in 1918. Multiple finishes give the engraved design a sense of depth as the Canadian cavalry charges towards enemy positions, swords drawn, with both man and beast exemplifying courage even under threat of enemy fire. The image is paired with the general service badge of the Canadian Expeditionary Force, which is selectively gold-plated to hint at the pride of a young nation for its fighting force throughout the war and during Canadas Hundred Days. The selectively gold-plated obverse features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. FIRST IN A NEW, LIMITED SERIES! On the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of 11 November 1918, this four-coin series reflects on the wartime contributions of select Allied forces united in one common cause. FOUR ALLIES, ONE LAST PUSH: Canada leads the charge on this first coin, where the engraved image shines the spotlight on the often-overlooked role of the cavalry in a war that was increasingly defined by technology and modern machinery. THE IMAGE OF COURAGE: The scene on the reverse features an outstanding amount of intricately engraved details! Multiple finishes add a sense of depth to a poignant design, which speaks of valour as the Canadian cavalry charges towards the enemy. SELECTIVE GOLD PLATING: Like all coins in this limited series, selective gold plating adds a rich golden hue and a hint of national pride to the insignia on the reverse: the general service shoulder badge of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. FOR KING AND COUNTRY: Selective gold plating also highlights the effigy of King George V on the obverse, which largely resembles that of all Canadian coins issued during the First World War.
