In Flanders Fields, the poppies blow/ Between the crosses, row on row…

The sight of poppies growing in the battle-scarred fields of Flanders inspired a Canadian to pen a future anthem of remembrance, which forever immortalized the blood-red flower as a memorial emblem for war, peace, service, and most of all, sacrifice. Canada’s Flower of Remembrance blooms symbolically each November, on the anniversary of Armistice, when Canadians wear the poppy with solemn pride. But the flower will forever be in bloom on this supremely crafted showpiece, whose swirling arrangement reminds us of the maelstrom that was the First World War and the countless sacrifices that paved the way for peace.

Commemorate the Armistice of 1918 with this stunning gold coin with red poppy. Order today.

  • 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ARMISTICE OF 1918: Elegantly evocative and powerfully symbolic, this collector’s piece commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of 1918 with a stunning design that reflects on the sacrifices of the First World War.

Design:

To mark the centennial of the Armistice of 1918, designed by artist Kerri Weller, your 99.99% gold coin combines two of the most powerful, evocative symbols of sacrifice and remembrance. A slightly stylized Papaver rhoeas blooms at the centre of the selectively coloured design, where a subtle translucence allows the coin’s gold surface to radiate light from within the crimson-tinted petals. Engraved around this central poppy are four additional poppy blooms and a bud; together, the six poppies represent the six continents that were involved in the First World War (1914-1918). Three leaves complete the swirling floral arrangement, whose motion alludes to the maelstrom of war, while a multitude of grave markers help convey the magnitude of the loss of life during the four-year conflict. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Written by Canadian John McCrae of Guelph, Ont., the poem In Flanders Field inspired an American campaign to adopt the poppy as a memorial symbol, which would, in turn, inspire French fundraising efforts to help children in war-torn areas by selling artificial poppies.
  • On July 5, 1921, the Great War Veteran’s Association in Canada formally adopted the poppy as the national Flower of Remembrance. This organization merged with other veteran groups to form the Canadian Legion in 1925.
  • Today, the Royal Canadian Legion’s annual poppy campaign continues to raise funds for all of Canada’s veterans and their families.
  • Worn during the Remembrance period (last Friday in October to November 11), a poppy should be placed on the left side and over the heart.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
