Description

A Murano glass poppy tops the Royal Canadian Mint's 2019 tribute to Canadian combatants. The red flower of Remembrance lies within an engraved wreath that symbolizes continuity. Shaped like the cross symbol of mourning, a ribbon bearing incuse text reminds us of our solemn pledge to our fallen, our veterans, our troops.

The reverse design by artist Kerri Weller is based on the poppy wreaths that are a common sight at commemorative services held each November 11 in Canada (Remembrance Day). A solemn symbol of remembrance, a red Murano glass poppy is centrally positioned against the coin’s proof finish. A wreath of poppies (Papaver rhoeas) forms a circular shape that represents continuity and hope behind the cross-shaped ribbon that bears the incuse text “LEST WE FORGET N’OUBLIONS JAMAIS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
