2022 Canada $20 Remembrance Day Fine Silver (No Tax)

From the great victories and tragic losses of the First World War came our most enduring symbol of service and sacrifice: the red poppy, which is colourfully highlighted on this Remembrance Day coin. Blooming in the foreground and in the fields of the fallen behind the weary officer, the poppy imbues this mournful scene with hope. It is a lasting reminder of those who fought and sacrificed everything; of the courage of those who serve; of the consequences of war, and a commitment to peace—lest we forget.

The first ceremony honouring Canada's fallen soldiers was held in 1919, on the anniversary of the Armistice that ended the First World War. From 1921 to 1930, Armistice Day was observed annually on the Monday in the week of November 11, which coincided with Thanksgiving Day. In 1931, the federal government separated the two holidays by moving Thanksgiving to a different date and fixing November 11 as Armistice Day, which was re-named Remembrance Day to keep the focus on the combatants.

Designed by artist Miko Maciaszek, your coin’s reverse features a poignant depiction of a weary Captain of the Canadian Army Medical Corps sitting against a tree and taking a moment to reflect after the Second Battle of Ypres, during the First World War. Selective colour highlights the blooming poppies in the foreground, while in the background; more poppies appear between the crosses that mark the graves of the fallen. These poppies represent hope and eternal life through Remembrance, and serve as a reminder that a soldier’s sacrifice should never be forgotten. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
