In keeping with the tradition of issuing finely crafted coins reminiscent of the sacrifices of the Canadians who fought for freedom, the Royal Canadian Mint has issued a two-dollar circulation coin in commemoration of the Armistice centenary. This coin recalls the signing of the historic peace treaty that ended with the First World War on November 11, 1918.

"For a nation of eight million people, Canada's efforts in World War I were remarkable. More than 650,000 Canadian men and women served during the First World War, "said Bill Morneau, Minister of Finance. "By issuing a circulation coin in honor of the 100th anniversary of the armistice, the Mint is helping to preserve the memory of all Canadian veterans, who continue to remind us that it is worth fighting for peace and freedom, even with great personal costs ".


"The Mint is proud to share the story of courage, sacrifice and determination, both on the battlefield and on the home front, by Canadians who ensured the victory of the Allies in World War I," said Jennifer Camelon, Acting President. CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. "With a new currency that commemorates the armistice, Canadians can remember our predecessors who risked their lives or made the ultimate sacrifice in the First World War to defend our values ​​and freedoms."

"We salute the many Canadian men and women who responded to the call to serve, and this year in particular, those who served in the tragic First World War," said Royal Canadian Legion Dominion President Tom Irvine. "This important commemorative coin will be another way to ensure that we never forget their sacrifice."


Designed by the Canadian artist Laurie McGaw, the reverse of this coin represents a moving couple of two symbols of remembrance. Within the inner core, a soldier's "Brodie" helmet represents the end of World War I and serves as a solemn reminder of the many lives lost during this unprecedented conflict. Beneath the hull is a large poppy, a memory inspired by the Canadian poem In Flanders Fields. Its brilliant scarlet color is recreated in selectively colored versions of the coin. Two more poppies are engraved on the outer ring, which includes the words "REMEMBER", "SOUVENIR" and the year "2018".

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, designed by the Canadian artist Susanna Blunt in 2003.
