2008 (1918-) Canadian 25-Cent Poppy Armistice 90th Anniv Coloured Quarter Original Coin Roll

 

In 2008, on the eve of Remembrance Day commemorations and the 90th anniversary of the Armistice, the Royal Canadian Mint, in association with the Royal Canadian Legion, was proud to issue another coloured poppy quarter which featured the iconic red poppy, Canada's flower of remembrance. Eleven million 25-cent coloured poppy coins entered circulation on October 27, 2008.

 

Design

The portrait in right profile of Elizabeth II, when she was 77 years old. It is surrounded with the inscription "ELIZABETH II D • G • REGINA" (Elizabeth II, Queen by the grace of God).

The design by Cosme Saffioti is based on the earlier poppy coin, issued four years ago. 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 - and surrounded with the legend "REMEMBER SOUVENIR", the facial value and the inscription "ARMISTICE".

 

Packaging

Each roll contains 40 coins of Royal Canadian Mint issued 2008 (1918-) Canadian 25-Cent Poppy Armistice 90th Anniv Coloured quarters in original unopened condition.
