    1 Oz Silver Coin 2019 $20 Canada Murano Glass Poppy Flower Lest We Forget  N'oublions jamais


    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 defense 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.

    The poppy (Papaver rhoeas) is a poignant symbol that evokes memories of our veterans, their sacrifices and a mutual longing for peace on this planet we all call home. In designing this coin, I looked to my family's own wartime experiences to find that emotional space in which I could distil these key concepts of loss, remembrance and hope.”  Kerri Weller, Artist

    “A Murano poppy is something we’ve never done before and the effect is stunning. There’s no mistaking its meaning. And by making sure each poppy stands out, the engraved wreath was our way of representing the many individual stories of sacrifice and remembrance. It was truly an honor to work on this project.” Erica Maga, Product Manager, Royal Canadian Mint

    Did you know…

    ·  Written in 1915, the poem In Flanders Fields by John McCrae of Guelph, Ont., inspired the international campaign behind the poppy symbol of remembrance.

    ·  Poppies flourished in Flanders during the Napoleonic Wars but disappeared soon after the battles ended. It was the same with the First World War: bombardments disrupted the chalky soil and infused it with lime from the rubble, thus creating favorable conditions for Popaver rhoeas to (briefly) appear on the battlefields.

    ·  In 1921, the Great War Veteran’s Association in Canada—the predecessor of the Royal Canadian Legion—officially adopted the poppy as a Flower of Remembrance.

    ·  Today, the poppy honors the memory of the 117,000 Canadian servicemen and women who lost their lives. It is worn during the Remembrance Day period, from the last Friday in October to November 11.

    ·  If you remember having a lapel poppy with a green canter, you’re not wrong: the black center changed to green in 1980, then back to black again in 2002 to reflect the poppy’s actual colors.
