Recapture Australia’s experience at the dying days of the First Great War with the 2018 WWI Armistice 5oz Silver Proof, an imposing tribute to the day the guns fell silent. Crafted from a tremendous five ounces of 99.9% pure silver, this commanding 65mm Niue legal tender issue seamlessly blends vivid full-colour with the luxury of precious metal. With just 500 struck, however, this Proof is also extremely exclusive. Prompt action will be a must to secure this individually edge-numbered WWI tribute.

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. Given the small number available, Macquarie Mint is delighted to be able to offer this prestigious release.

Struck from 5oz of 99.9% pure silver

With a gargantuan five ounces of precious metal employed in its production, the 2018 WWI Armistice 5oz Silver Proof is a show-stopper. 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

The Proof coin’s richly symbolic reverse design draws upon powerful imagery, vividly enhanced in full-colour to create a stirring homage to Australia’s WWI experience. A uniformed bugler stands before a field of poppies, with a rising sun in the background. It’s a clever design that uses symbolism to underpin the sense of timelessness already employed by the precious metal elements.

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.

Given the highly exclusive nature of this issue, prompt action is recommended. Secure your 2018 WWI Armistice 5oz Silver Proof today.
