A tribute to our heroes—the military! Order today!

Members of the Canadian Armed Forces serve our country in many ways, devoting their lives to duty and committing to a much greater sacrifice should the need arise. A life of structure and discipline keeps these brave men and women ready for deployment, and speaks of their courage and dedication. Many of our soldiers have served—and continue to serve—in war zones throughout the world, fighting for the ideals we hold dear. Their job doesn't end when the fighting has ceased, with many continuing to serve by helping to rebuild infrastructure in the quest for peace and security.

A heartfelt way to recognize the valour and dedication of these men and women who face danger each day in the line of duty! Order today!

About the Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Ken Ryan, your coin uses selective colour over engraving to create a portrait of bravery in action. In the engraved background, trees and branches hang overhead in this woodland setting, where military helicopters are taking part in rescue operations in an area of conflict. In the foreground, an infantry soldier in combat clothing extends his hand and reaches out to help the viewer, almost pulling us into the dynamic design, while the other gloved hand keeps a tight grip on the rappelling rope. The red-and-white colours of the Canadian flag patch on the upper left sleeve stand out against the green, brown and black camouflage pattern on the helmet and uniform, while the soldier keeps his expression intently focused on the dangerous situation at hand.

  • The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to all UN peacekeepers in 1988 for their efforts in keeping the peace.
