This elegant 2023 fine silver dollar coin features an intricately engraved female personification of Peace.  The Latin inscription “Pax” denotes the Roman goddess of peace, and serves as a reminder of Canada’s past, present, and future commitment to seeking peace, stability, and a more secure international order. Mintage is limited to only 6,000.  Weight is just over one ounce of fine silver.  GST/HST exempt.

The Design:

The coin features Ultra High Relief with exceptional detail, as well as an innovative and captivating background design.  As the coin is moved in the light, the pattern creates a pulsating effect which accentuates the design of Peace figure.  Lady Peace also stands out in brilliant silver, contrasting from the background which is layered in rose gold.

The Peace dollar celebrates Canada's dedication to making the world a more peaceful place.  Lady Peace is seen crowned with maple leaves. Her visage is accompanied by “PAX 2023” and the Canadian national motto: “A MARI USQUE AD MARE” - From Sea to Sea. The obverse design features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Canada's Peacekeeping Contribution:

International recognition of Canada’s efforts to build a more peaceful world dates back to 1957 when Lester B. Pearson won the Nobel Peace Prize. Then Canadian Secretary of state for External Affairs, Pearson helped diffuse the Suez Crisis by creating the world’s first, large-scale United Nations peacekeeping force. 

Over the next 40 years, Canada's contribution in UN peacekeeping became an integral part of the country's international role. In 1988, the UN received the Nobel Peace Prize for decades of peacekeeping activities. By then, Canada had contributed close to 80,000 peacekeepers.
