1 oz. Fine Silver Coin - 50th Anniversary of Canadian Peacekeeping in Cyprus - Mintage: 8,500 (2014)

Flash

8500
$114.95 CAD
 

A beautiful commemorative coin with selective colouring!

Canadian battalions remained in Cyprus until the mid-1990's and a small group of observers is still present today. UNFICYP is now in its 50th year and has witnessed a minimum of one tour from virtually every infantry battalion in Canada, with armoured and artillery regiments also serving.

This eye-catching coin automatically makes you think of all the men and women who have served with the Canadian Forces, but its theme will undoubtedly strike a chord with anyone who feels a sense of pride in Canada's leadership role in the global peacekeeping movement, including historians, political pundits; anyone who stands against violence and supports the peaceful resolution of all conflicts. Its design provides a privileged glimpse into a United Nations observation post and of the difficult and isolated terrain that often characterizes the world's conflict zones.
