Blending vivid full-colour with the ethereal lustre of precious metal, the imposing 2018 WWI Armistice 5oz Silver Proof forms a tremendous tribute to the end of the First Great War. Despite its widespread appeal, however, very few collectors will have the chance to own this 65mm showstopper. With mintage of these individually edge-numbered legal tender coins a mere 500, the images above are as close as most will come.

Strictly limited mintage

For a country just over a decade old, the outbreak and development of World War I was a defining moment. A staggering 38.7% of males aged 18-44 enlisted - and many would never return. Given the enormous significance of the country's 'Baptism of Fire' to Australians, it comes as a surprise that just 500 of these Proof coins have been struck. Consigning this release to the collections of a privileged few, this figure is reflected in the individual edge-numbering on each Proof.

Struck from 5oz of 99.9% pure silver

A gargantuan five ounces of precious metal have been employed in the production of the 2018 WWI Armistice 5oz Silver Proof. The result is an intensely imposing numismatic tribute, with a generous canvas to be exploited by the coin's designers. The metal in question is 99.9% pure silver, whose shimmery lustre adds a timeless elegance to the reverse design's background elements. A flawless, Proof-quality strike allows for sensational contrast between the mirrored and frosted fields, adding to the tapestry of texture already on offer.

Features vivid, full-colour motif

While the reverse design's silver elements bring an historic, legendary feel, the use of vivid full-colour captures the intensity and drama of the war's final moments. A uniformed bugler with slouch hat stands in a field of poppies before a rising sun: an unmistakably, richly symbolic design.

Commemorates the Centenary of the end of WWI

After years of conflict and millions of lives lost, the end of the 'war to end all wars' occurred in 1918, at the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month. Delegates from France, Britain and Germany had met in the pre-dawn that morning, at a secret location. A document was signed. History was made. Those men and women who'd served and survived would finally, mercifully, be able to return home. But life would never be the same.

Prestigious Presentation

This Niue legal tender coin arrives housed in a prestigious timber case, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. The Certificate is numbered, and matches the individual edge-numbering on the coin itself - a reminder that there are only 499 others in the world just like it.
