A wreath tribute to our Veterans and to the fallen on the Poppy’s 100th year. Order today.

On the Poppy’s 100th year as a symbol of Remembrance, we offer this wreath 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.

Selective colour highlights the Poppy of Remembrance on its 100th year. Order today.

Special features:

  • AN ANNUAL RITE OF REMEMBRANCE! For 2021, our annual Remembrance Day coin combines two different floral symbols: forget-me-nots and the red Poppy that has symbolized Remembrance in Canada since 1921.  
  • SELECTIVE COLOUR! While special frostings add depth to the engraved forget-me-nots, selective colour over relief adds a mournful red to the poppies and fall-like hues to the maple leaf symbol of a nation’s gratitude.
  • EXQUISITE ENGRAVING! This 1 oz. fine silver coin features precision-etched details and thoughtful touches that transform the delicate-looking flowers into a powerful expression of Remembrance. 
  • DYNAMIC DESIGN! By using different sizes of flowers, the artist has created a sense of movement that pulls you into the wreath design that invites all Canadians to reflect, remember and never forget.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
  • NO GST/HST

Design:
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.

"My grandfather was a Second World War veteran so it was crucial that this piece pays tribute to all who served. I wanted to keep the focus on the significance of the Poppy while balancing it with the forget-me-not flowers. But this isn’t your typical symmetrical wreath: from right to left, the different sizes of poppies create a sweeping spiralling motion that results in a looser, more artistic composition.
As a tattoo artist, I’m accustomed to my designs carrying a lot of emotional weight for the client and I love seeing how much joy and happiness it brings them. I’m hoping this coin will do the same to those who receive it – that it brings them peace and happiness, and does their loved ones justice by honouring everything they did for us." Caitlin Lindstrom-Milne, Artist

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.

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