Description

A national day of celebration is also a day of remembrance in Newfoundland and Labrador, where a blue flower is worn on July 1 as a memorial tribute to First World War soldiers. This 1 oz. coin is a promise to never forget. Its obverse is filled with laser-engraved forget-me-not flowers, while on the reverse, the flowers wrap around the Royal Newfoundland Regiment’s caribou emblem — a symbol of valour and sacrifice in battles at places like Beaumont-Hamel in France.

The reverse design by Derek C. Wicks uses a trail of forget-me-not flowers to symbolize a spirit of remembrance. A multitude of flowers pour from the rocky province to wrap around its rugged coast and surround the animal emblem of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. Perched on a crag overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the caribou faces east towards the Beaumont-Hamel battlefield that is a symbol of wartime valour and sacrifice for the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. The obverse features a laser-engraved pattern of forget-me-not flowers behind the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
