Why purchase this 1 oz Silver 2019 Canada Peace & Liberty Ultra High Relief Reverse Proof Medal ?
This Peace and Liberty Ultra High Relief Reverse Proof Silver Medal marks the first time that the work of a US Mint designer and a Royal Canadian Mint designer have come together on an issue. The medal's release is timed to coincide with the centennial anniversary of the end of the First World War, November 11, 2018. Part of a mintage of just 3,000 pieces, this medal was struck from one ounce of .9999 fine silver at the Royal Canadian Mint.
Exquisite Pax Design by Susan Taylor
John Mercanti created the Liberty design that appears on the obverse. The young woman holds her torch, which has laurel wrapped around it, high. This symbolizes victory over oppression. In her right hand, she holds two vipers, symbols of evil in the world, at bay. Liberty, or "Libertas" in Latin," strides forward toward the future. "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) is inscribed to the left of the image, while "LIBERTAS" is inscribed to the right of it.
Susan Taylor's reverse design depicts Pax, Latin for "Peace," as a young woman. She has her shoulders open to the holder, but her head is turned to the left side of the coin. On her head is a wreath of olive branches and maple leafs, which together symbolize the core Canadian values of order, peace, and good government. "A MARI USQUE AD MARI" (From sea to sea) arches over the image, while "PAX" is inscribed to its left and the date, "2019," is inscribed to its right.
Virtually Flawless PF69 FR with Black Core Holder and Exclusive Canada Label
This piece earned Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) second highest grade, Proof 69, meaning that it virtually lacks any imperfections visible to the naked eye. It was also certified First Releases, a designation that means that it was received for grading not more than 30 days after its initial mint release. NGC provided this information on a label that bears the Canadian flag and an image of Niagara Falls and set the coin in a black core holder.
