On November 11, 1918 an agreement ending World War I was signed and went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. The U.S., Canada, and other countries pay tribute to the men and women who bravely fought in major military conflicts with a diverse range of commemorative coins.
In a world full of coins, there is not much difference in their overall shape. Despite various sizes and metal content, the shape of the coin is nearly always round and thin. There are, however, a few very unique coins struck by various Mints around the world that break these conformities. From domed coins to volcano shaped coins, you will be surprised the examples ModernCoinMart has to offer!
