More info

Prima Guerra Mondiale
La prima guerra mondiale fu un conflitto armato che coinvolse le principali potenze mondiali e molte di quelle minori tra il luglio del 1914 e il novembre del 1918. Chiamata inizialmente dai contemporanei “guerra europea”, con il coinvolgimento successivo delle colonie dell'Impero britannico e di altri paesi extraeuropei tra cui gli Stati Uniti d'America e l'Impero giapponese prese il nome di guerra mondiale o anche Grande Guerra: fu infatti il più grande conflitto armato mai combattuto fino alla seconda guerra mondiale.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin Resembles the 1916 Mark I model worn by Canadian combatants, the combat helmet-shaped coin is the result of a careful collaboration between Royal Canadian Mint engravers and engineers. The coin’s unprecedented, extreme curvature allows for a realistic re-creation (on a much smaller scale) of the bowl-shaped headgear issued to Canadian troops and all British Empire forces in 1916. The reverse provides a view of the top of the now-iconic steel helmet, whose battle-worn appearance is the result of engraved “cracks” and “markings” beneath the antique finish that gives it all a distressed look. All around the reverse, the inscriptions: “1918” – the year of the war, “2018” – the year of issue and “LEST WE FORGET” – the name of the coin. The obverse of the coin resembles the interior of the helmet and depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. All around the coin, the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “CANADA” – the issuing country, “D·G·REGINA” – Dei Gratia Regina and “25 DOLLARS” – the face value.
