Given the strong response we received on the Canada 150 Silver One Ounce Rounder, we have decided to continue the Rounders as an Exclusive Canadian Coin News Series. For 2018, the rounder will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. The obverse features the same obverse as the first series – Canadian Coin News plus the Maple Leaf. The reverse features the poppy, which has been meticulously hand-painted, under a microscope with lighting, in red and black, along with the wording: 1918 – WE REMEMBER – 2018. 1 TROY OZ. .999 AG. Once again, the mintage is only 150 and each rounder is individually numbered. Each one ounce silver rounder is unique as it has been individually poured, struck and hand painted by John Masterson, of Beaver Bullion, who produced the First Series for CCN.
Each rounder will be inserted in a coin flip, including a description and mintage number. A letter of authenticity signed by CCN editor/publisher Mike Walsh is also included.
World War I (WWI or WW1), also known as the First World War, the Great War, or the War to End All Wars, was a global war originating in Europe that lasted from July 28, 1914 to November 11, 1918. More than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, were mobilized in one of the largest wars in history. Over 11 million combatants (including 59,544 Canadians) and seven million civilians died as a result of the war. It was one of the deadliest conflicts in history, and paved the way for major political changes, including revolutions in many of the nations involved.
Customers who purchased the No. 1 series were given the first opportunity in October to buy the second series rounder, and the same mintage number. We are now offering the remaining rounders. Tax exempt. Free shipping.
