"Bringing this Remembrance Day coin to life was an intricate process involving specialists who helped achieve an accurate and realistic depiction. Inspired by John McCrae’s poems, most notably “In Flanders Fields” and "The Unconquered Dead,” I set out to capture a moment of serenity and reflection for a young captain, who is surrounded by symbols representing the consequences of war. I hope this coin will preserve and relay the memories of those who made such immense sacrifices for us."

“The Canadian Army’s baptism of fire in the First World War came in late April and early May 1915 in the defence of the Belgian town of Ypres. When the Germans attacked, employing poison gas for the first time on a large scale, the Canadians were thrown into a desperate counter-attack that blunted the assault. In the days that followed, the fighting raged on, with horrific losses, but ultimately resulting in a great defensive victory. This coin powerfully portrays, in splendid detail and with great historical accuracy, the quiet reflection of individuals who struggled to make sense of the life-altering events that they had experienced. The image of the crosses and the poppies, evoking the famous words of John McCrae, represent at once sacrifice and rebirth, but also underscore the terrible cost of victory.”
