Design:

Your coin features Ivor Sharp's famous 1969 photo of John Lennon and Yoko Ono during their 8-day Bed-in for Peace in Montréal's Queen Elizabeth Hotel. Sharp captured John and Yoko in an all-white setting surrounded by handwritten messages of peace — including one in French. The design portrays John and Yoko in black and white on an engraved coin. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

“I thought often, and for many years afterwards, about the extraordinary experience of being in the company of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Spending time with him left an enduring impression, and only partly because I was a young, star-struck fan. On a deeper level, I was moved by the sincerity of his idealism, and encouraged by his certainty that citizen action and the energy it generates can truly change the world. He was an inspiration. And as our world grows more cynical, my memories of his message—clear, simple and unafraid—grow fonder still.”

Allan Michael Rock, P.C., B.A., LL.B., Q.C.

Did you know…
  • An international hit made in Canada: Give Peace a Chance, the most powerful anti-war anthem recorded in the Montréal hotel room hit #14 on Billboard Hot 100 and #2 on British Singles Chart. 5 months later, 1/2M anti-war demonstrators sang the song in unison on Moratorium Day in Washington, DC.
  • A valued Canadian stopover: Lennon and Ono married in Gibraltar in March 1969. They honeymooned in Amsterdam, where they held their 1st Bed-In for Peace. Montréal was their 2nd Bed-In nest, much to their Canadian fans content. Lennon appreciated the Canadian welcome and applauded the country for "not interfering in foreign countries".
  • Attempting to meet the PM: After the Bed-In, then aspiring politician Allan Rock invited Lennon to attend a Peace conference at the University of Ottawa. He promised John Lennon a meeting with Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau. Unfortunately, Trudeau wasn’t home when they dropped by...
  • A 1st solo single: Recorded in Montréal by Canadian music producer André Perry, Give Peace a Chance was released as a single by the Plastic Ono Band. The song was the 1st solo single by John Lennon.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a graphic beauty box, making this product truly special for John Lennon fans.

I will keep this coin because it celebrates a historic event but seriously, more thought and creativity should have been invested into this design, not the Mint's best work. It must have been done in a rush. It could have been a lot better, a little on the boring side, but nevertheless a time in history so have to keep it.

Whomever designed this needs to be sent off into the sunset - is this a sticker or silkscreened on the coin? This is hideous. Doesn't even do justice. Very ugly.

I see the John Lennon and Yoko Ono bed-in coin is 76% sold so is it a limited edition (i.e., no additional minted copies thereafter)?

Hop

Hello and thank you for asking. Once the mintage of 9,999 will be reached it is important to note that no other coins will be produced.

Chantal

If the coin is in stock why is it not shipping until July ??

Carolyn

Hello Carolyn and thank you for asking. When we launch a coin we usually make only a part of the mintage indicated. As we have several coins in production, it can take a bit of time to complete the production process.

Chantal

How is the image applied to the 1 oz. Pure Silver Coin - Give Peace a Chance coin? Is it etched or is it an actual photo glued to the coin? I'm still buying 10 whatever the case.

NtzPrinter

It's a proprietary colour technique. But no, it isn't glued on

Jamie

Does the coin come in a case ??

Paul

Make sure you never ever unseal the coin from the plastic encapsulation or you will loose 80 percent of its value as a collectors item.

John

Hello Paul and thank you for asking. This coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a graphic beauty box.

Chantal

john

It's a colour image application with engraving beneath it.
