2020 Canada 75th Anniversary of the Signing of the United Nations Charter Keepsake Set

It was 75 years ago that the devastation of war gave way to a new era of global cooperation. The 2020 $1 commemorative circulation coin celebrates Canada’s role as a Founding Member of the United Nations and as a contributor to world peace. Two versions — uncoloured and selectively coloured — are included in this set, which features each circulation coin denomination issued in 2020.

A new era of global cooperation. Hold on to peace.

Out of the chaos and devastation of the Second World War came a new era of global cooperation. Allies in war became allies for peace as representatives from 51 nations, including Canada, signed a treaty to establish a new world body, which came into existence on October 24, 1945.
Its purpose: to "save succeeding generations from the scourge of war" by promoting diplomacy, universal rights and international peace. On the 75th anniversary of the Charter and the establishment of the United Nations (UN), Canada’s 2020 $1 commemorative circulation coin celebrates this nation’s role as a Founding Member of the UN and as a contributor to world peace.

Canada is a nation of global citizens striving for a better world. Our place on the international stage was built on a history of peacekeeping and peacebuilding, and it is increasingly defined by values we hold dear — values embodied by the maple leaf on this $1 circulation coin, where it is a symbol of our vision, our voice, our place as partners in a global community.
