About the 2020 Recognition Medal & Magnet Design by One Mint
We are brave, we are strong, we are one. We are Canadian! The Recognition Medal, created by Royal Canadian Mint employees, features two different designs, each symbolizing the spirit of our nation as we stand together through these trying times.  

The heart and maple leaf icon represents the collective spirit of Canadians. The maple leaf and heart as one symbolize Canadians coming together in embrace as we help those in need. The pulsating technology brings the strong heartbeat of our country to life.

The second side represents our grateful spirit. The heart in the centre of the group symbolizes Canadians coming together in appreciation for our essential workers.  We recognize their dedication and bravery, and the micro text represents the thankful voices of a nation.

The medal is made of nickel-plated steel that makes it magnetic. To wear your medal, choose the side you wish to display on your clothing and place the magnet on the other side of the fabric.

The attention to detail, time and effort that the engravers, machine programmers (CNC), die polishers and engineers put into the features of this medal was but a small homage to the huge service that our essential workers perform on a daily basis. It was their way of showing their gratitude – through their art and craft.
