Behind every fallen soldier is a mother, a father, siblings, relatives and friends left behind.

The First World War is the bloodiest war Canada has ever fought. It claimed over 60,000 lives. Ypres (1915), the Somme (1916), Vimy Ridge (1917) and Passchendaele (1917) are just a few of the battles where Canadian and Newfoundlander soldiers distinguished themselves. Their courage earned the Allies’ respect and raised Canada’s presence on the world stage. In 1914, Newfoundlanders rushed to enlist, leading to a shortage of khaki uniforms; some donned blue-coloured leggings, which earned the 1st Newfoundland Regiment its nickname as The Blue Puttees. For Newfoundland, the tragic memory of her fallen sons during the Battle of Beaumont-Hamel endures in the generations that have followed every July1st. They solemnly regard that day as a symbol of unity, courage and tremendous sacrifice. Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box. 99.99% pure silver. Jamie Desrochers (reverse), Susanna Blunt (obverse).
