Description

Capture the beauty and allure of this lifelike poppy flower while paying tribute to all those who have served and continue to serve our country in the name of freedom and peace.  This innovative poppy shaped coin has a limited mintage of just 7000 and is struck in one ounce of .9999 fine silver.  The antique finish reminds us of the symbolism of the poppy dating back to the era of the First World War, when John McCrae wrote his enduring poem “In Flanders Fields”.  With a perfect blend of form and significance, this everlasting poppy will earn a place of honour in your collection.

 

The Design:

The poppy has been sculpted to capture all of the intricate elements of the symbolic flower, from the outward-curving petals to the innermost whorl, while the antique finish accentuates every crinkle, curl and fold.  The obverse’s coin-shaped base features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt with an engraved legend that includes the words “CANADA”, “2020” and “20 DOLLARS”.

 

Did You Know?

The poppy has been Canada’s Flower of Remembrance since 1921. During the First World War, bombardments disrupted the soil in Flanders and created favourable conditions for Papaver rhoeas to appear on the battlefields, as described in the poem In Flanders Fields by John McCrae of Guelph, Ont. The poem was written in 1915 and later inspired the international campaign to make the poppy a symbol of remembrance.
