In Canada, the practice of giving peace medals to First Nations chiefs dates back to the early 1670s, when such medals were handed out by the government of King Louis XIV of France. Around the same time, the British government of King Charles II was presenting similar medals to First Nations peoples in British colonies in what is now the eastern United States. When Britain gained control of France's North American holdings following the Seven Years' War (1756 to 1763), the French peace medals were replaced by British peace medals featuring King George II and, later, his grandson George III.

Your coin design features the reverse and obverse sides of the King George III Peace Medal rendered in striking detail, including the young, armoured bust of King George III wearing the ribbon of the Order of the Garter. To his right is the Arms of George III that would have appeared on the reverse of the peace medals at the time of the War of 1812. Beneath the Coat of Arms is a ribbon bearing the royal motto, "Dieu, et Mon Droit" (God and My Right) flanked by the symbolic rose and thistle of British monarchy.
