Flipping and rotating a drawing in mental space was a fun challenge, considering it's usually something we leave to computers. It seems particularly fitting here, as Peace itself can only be achieved by human minds and will. Capturing such an ephemeral idea in one gesture—one figure—seemed impossible, yet I was driven by how strongly I felt about the subject, how necessary this symbol is now. I hope my passion came through in her final design, so that we are inspired to make tangible a reality she can only symbolize.

This product is the result of talented people working together, each determined to raise the bar of innovation and fine craftsmanship by creating a remarkable tribute to peace —An RCM-first double-sided, precious metal cast, inserted into a fine silver coin. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the efforts made globally to make peace a reality, and to honour those who have served our country and those who continue to advance peace around the world. Let this meaningful coin inspire us to make a difference, helping to build a better, more stable world for all.

This has been an incredible project that saw us overcome many technical challenges, and it will hopefully become a platform for future coins with the same construction. The coin is made from two main parts, each with their own unique challenges and storytelling characteristics. The casting in the centre of the coin is made from fine 99.9% pure silver, which is notoriously difficult to cast consistently, but it allows for the intricate details that bring the artist’s vision to life in full 3D. The finer elements of the casting were so delicate, most polishing systems would either damage it or be unable to bring the details up to a shine. The ring around the casting required the development of a new coin blank and a new system to achieve a perfect numismatic quality, while ensuring the core centre was consistently sized for us to secure the cast piece in place. This coin is unlike anything the Royal Canadian Mint has ever created, and the complex technology needed to deliver the artist’s vision was developed in house to ensure no part of the story needed to be simplified. The Allegory of Peace has been a wonderful coin to work on, and the technology that was developed for it has unlocked a new way for the Royal Canadian Mint to tell more intricate stories though the combination of art and science.
