2010 Canada $300 14K New Brunswick Coat of Arms Gold Coin

During the Middle Ages, any knight who went into battle needed to distinguish friend from foe and would paint identifying marks on his shield. Later, these markings began appearing on military surcoats and cloaks worn by royal messengers.

This is how the Coat of Arms was born a design of heraldic symbols created to represent a monarchy, a clan, a territory or nation. Even Canada, a nation formed long after the Middle Ages, has a Coat of Arms as does every province and territory within its domain.

The Coat of Arms for New Brunswick (NB) evolved over the course of more than a century. On May 26, 1868, Queen Victoria first assigned the Provincial Shield featuring a gold lion (symbolizing England) on a red background with an ancient galley below to represent the province's shipbuilding and maritime history.

The crest and motto followed in 1966 by Order of the Lieutenant Governor in Council. Spem Reduxit was inspired by the province's great seal. It means Hope restored, and refers to New Brunswick's role as a refuge for United Empire Loyalists.

Other features were assigned by Royal Warrant of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on September 24, 1984, New Brunswick's bi-centennial. These augmentations included a crest of an Atlantic salmon with St. Edward's Crown and a golden royal helmet above the Shield; a grassy mound covered with fiddleheads and purple violets (the province's floral emblem); and two white tailed deer. Each deer is wearing a wampum collar and is presented with a small shield. The Union Badge represents English, Scottish and Irish settlers while the Royal Arms of France on the right acknowledges French settlement.
