2019 Canadian $20 Lest We Forget - 1 oz Fine Silver & Murano Glass Coin


A Murano glass poppy (a first for us) tops our 2019 tribute to the men and women who lost their lives in the service of our county. Behind this red flower of Remembrance, the engraved design is based on the poppy wreaths laid at the foot of our war memorials each November 11. Its cross-shaped ribbon bears the promise made to the fallen, even as it stretches across the famous wildflowers of Flanders. It reminds us of sacrifices made in times of war and in the defence of peace. When woven into a wreath and laid upon our monuments, the bright red poppy acts as a solemn mark from a grateful nation—one that promises to never forget.

A pure silver 2019 tribute to courage, dedication, and sacrifice. Order today.

Design

Designed by artist Kerri Weller, your coin 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.


Packaging

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
