2020 Canada $5 Moments to Hold - Remembrance Day Fine Silver (No Tax)

This year (2020) marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, adding special significance to November 11 – Remembrance Day. As seen on our 2020 V-E Day coins, the bold "V" for Victory commemorates the end of hostilities in Europe in 1945. But the standout feature on this coin is the selectively coloured arrangement of poppies, which are tinted red to represent the sacrifices and heroism that paved the path to peace.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War with two symbols of the war: a large "V" for Victory and a field of poppies. Selective colour highlights the flowers of remembrance that line a v-shaped pathway. Above them, rays of sunlight streaming through the clouds are an expression of hope for a brighter, peaceful future. The reverse also includes the word "CANADA" near the curved rim, while the face value "5 DOLLARS" and the year "2020" are inscribed below. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
