Description

On the Poppy’s 100th year as a symbol of Remembrance, the Royal Canadian Mint presents this 2021 $20 fine silver coin to honour those who have served our country and those who continue to help advance peace around the world. Theirs is a legacy of great trials and sacrifice, but also of hope and heroism. We will never forget their bravery, and with this wreath of forget-me-nots and red poppies, we gratefully acknowledge their service while honouring the memory of the fallen. Mintage is limited to just 7,500. GST/HST exempt.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Caitlin Lindstrom-Milne is a spiralling wreath arrangement of Remembrance flowers: red-coloured poppies and engraved forget-me-nots. Upon a banner bearing the words “CANADA” and “2021” lies a colourful maple leaf, which symbolizes this nation’s gratitude to all who serve and have served their country throughout Canada’s military history. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did You Know
  • The Poppy has been Canada’s Flower of Remembrance since 1921, when the predecessor of the Royal Canadian Legion adopted it as the official Flower of Remembrance. Today, the red Poppy honours the memory of the more than 118,000 Canadian servicemen and women who lost their lives in the line of duty since Confederation.
  • Canada and Newfoundland were separate dominions within the British Empire during the First World War. In the same way the red Poppy is worn on November 11, a blue flower is worn in Newfoundland and Labrador on July 1, Memorial Day, in fulfillment of the promise to never forget a generation lost at the Battle of Beaumont-Hamel in 1916.
