2004-P Canadian 25-Cent Remembrance Poppy Coloured Quarter Coin (Brilliant Uncirculated)

 

In 2004, the Royal Canadian Mint issued the 25-cent Poppy coin, the worlds first coloured circulation coin. The red poppy stamped on the reverse with pressurized ink had an innovative fluorescent security coating and quickly became a collector's item. Almost thirty million coins went into circulation in October, 2004. At the Mint Directors' Conference (MDC) in Paris, France, the 2004 coloured poppy coin was named the Most Innovative Circulation Coin.

 

Design

The obverse design features Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in right profile at 77 years old, surrounded by the Latin inscription "ELIZABETH II D. G. REGINA". This effigy was designed by Susanna Blunt.

Designed by Cosme Saffioti, the coin features in the middle of a maple leaf, a poppy, the symbol of remembrance of the sacrifice in World War I and other wars, is coloured in red - this was the first coloured general circulation coin in the world - and surrounded with the legend "REMEMBER SOUVENIR", the facial value and the inscription "CANADA".
