The Sentinel Soldier
A number of grotesques and gargoyles add fanciful flair to the outer walls of the Peace Tower. But halfway up the campanile, between the arched entry and the flagpole of the nation, stands a solemn reminder that this world-renowned landmark is a soaring monument to Canada's wartime sacrifices and commitment to peace. The Peace Tower’s stone-carved sentinel is the third of four Keepers of Parliament featured in this superb series of 10 troy ounce pure silver coins. The soldier stands with head bowed and in reverse arms, while selective gold plating adds an elegant touch of reverence to this sculpted memorial tribute to Canada’s fallen soldiers.

Remarkable, Artistic Design!

The design by artist Patrick Bélanger soars to great heights for a near eye-level view of the soldier that is carved at the center of the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill, in Ottawa, Ontario. 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.
