This 2014 $20 proof fine silver coin is a tribute to all the thousands of Canadians who have served as Peacekeepers. Mintage is 8,500 coins. HST/GST exempt.
It features a master corporal looking through field glasses, his blue beret in coloured enamel. In the background a watch tower with “UN” visible on the side of the tower, and a United Nations flag waving above the tower. A soldier standing at the base of the tower conveys the Peacekeepers need to be at the ready.

The United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus began on March 27, 1964 and would prove to be one of the longest peacekeeping missions. Canadian battalions remained in Cyprus until the mid-1990’s and a small group of observers is still present today.
