As we faced the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic the tremendous contributions of our essential workers must be recognized, as should the helping hands of all Canadians who are doing their part to keep us safe, healthy and connected. The 2020 Recognition Medal is the perfect way to show your appreciation.
The Recognition Medal, created by Royal Canadian Mint employees, features two different designs, each symbolizing the spirit of our nation as we stand together through these trying times. The heart and maple leaf icon on one side represents the collective spirit of Canadians The maple leaf and heart as one symbolize Canadians coming together in embrace as we help those in need The pulsating technology brings the strong heartbeat of our country to life. The second side represents our grateful spirit The heart in the centre of the group symbolizes Canadians coming together in appreciation for our essential workers We recognize their dedication and bravery, and the micro text represents the thankful voices of a nation.
