This coin, designed by Bonnie Ross, commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the Declaration of the First World War, not as a celebration of war and its atrocity, but in memory of the sacrifices made. Time is frozen for the couple on the reverse of this coin as they embrace one last time before his departure. Neither one knows if he will ever return. Both are uncertain of what lies ahead. In the background there is a train bound for Valcartier Camp and more soldiers, part of the first group of volunteers, also preparing to leave. Presumably they have already said goodbye to their loved ones. The entire design is encircled by the words "Canada 1914 - 2014 Dollar" and the artist's initials.

The obverse features the Susanna Blunt effigy of Elizabeth II and the words "Elizabeth II D.G. Regina"

This coin serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made 100 years ago. The brilliant finish, maroon clamshell box and serialized certificate add a dimension of craftsmanship to this beautiful coin. Struck in 9999 pure silver with a worldwide mintage of only 20,000 this coin immortalizes the sacrifice of those who came before us. Own this memory today.
