Description

Halfway between the Peace Tower’s entrance and the flagpole of the nation, a soldier stands as a solemn reminder of a nation’s wartime sacrifices. The Centre Block’s stone-carved sentinel guards the reverse of the third 10 oz. Keepers of Parliament coin, where a selective touch of gold plating adds a reverent gleam to this sculpted memorial tribute.

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • CENTRE BLOCK’S SOLDIER: This is the THIRD in a series of magnificently sculpted coins that highlight some of Parliament’s elaborate stonework figures.
  • 10 OZ. 99.99% FINE SILVER: A 10 oz. coin is perfectly sized to showcase an elaborate work of sculptured art! Each “guardian” is painstakingly brought to life on the reverse, where crisp lines and very finely engraved details stand out against a brilliant proof finish.
  • SELECTIVE GOLD PLATING adds an elegant touch to this depiction of a stately emblem.
  • EXPERT CRAFTSMANSHIP is evident in the details that make this a numismatic masterpiece, and an extraordinary tribute to the original stone-carved art.

DESIGN

The reverse by artist Patrick Bélanger soars to great heights for a near eye-level view of the soldier that is carved at the centre of the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill, in Ottawa, Ont. The positioning of the figure helps convey the height of the actual sculpture. The soldier bears a sombre, reflective expression and stands in reverse arms pose — a common theme during the post-war period, and a fitting symbol of remembrance for Canada’s fallen soldiers. Gold plating selectively highlights the soldier’s lapel, buttons and gear, including the rifle that is kept pointed down to the ground. To the right of the remembrance-themed sculpture is an ornamental flourish, whose floral motif is based on a frieze that adorns the Centre Block’s grand entrance. The reverse includes the face value, “100 DOLLARS”, and the words “CANADA 2018”. The obverse features a maple leaf background pattern and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
