Keep the memory alive

A century after the First World War ended, Canada remembers the Armistice as the culmination of four years of valour and sacrifice that stretched from the Ypres Salient to Vimy Ridge, and from Passchendaele to Mons, where the ceasefire marked the end of hostilities and the beginning of our need to never forget. Canada’s 2018 $2 circulation coin commemorates the centennial of the Armistice of 1918; twice featured in this collection, the coin pairs a poppy with a soldier’s helmet in a powerful expression of a nation’s gratitude for peace and the contributions of our combatants, who are collectively remembered every November 11.

Honour the 100th Anniversary of  the Armistice of 1918 with this 6-coin collection. Order today.

Special features:
  • A SIX-COIN SET: Your 2018 Armistice 6-Coin Collection includes the following Canadian circulation coins:
    • 5-cent
    • 10-cent
    • 25-cent
    •  $1
    • Two different versions (engraved-only and selectively coloured) of the new  $2 Armistice Commemorative circulation coin
  • A SOLEMN CENTENARY: Our special-issue $2 coin honours the 100th anniversary of the ceasefire that brought an end to the First World War.
  • A SYMBOL AND COLOUR OF REMEMBRANCE: The selectively coloured version features a symbolic touch of bright scarlet on the reverse, where the poppy is a widely known symbol of remembrance that was inspired by the Canadian poem In Flanders Fields.
  • PERMANENT SECURITY FEATURE: Also included on the reverse of the $2 coins, the engraved maple leaves are both a symbol of Canada and a cutting-edge security feature that ensures the coin’s authenticity.
  • Keep the Memory alive: Each $2 coin is a collectible tribute to our combatants of the First World War, and a pledge to never forget.

Special-themed $2 coin design:

The reverse image by Canadian artist Laurie McGaw marks the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of 1918 with a poignant pairing of two symbols of remembrance. Within the brass-plated inner core, a soldier’s helmet represents the end of the First World War and serves as a solemn reminder of the many lives lost during history’s first mechanized war. Below the helmet lies a large poppy, the official bloom of remembrance inspired by the Canadian poem In Flanders Fields, and whose bright scarlet colour is re-created on selectively coloured versions of the $2 coin. To represent English and French, two more poppies are engraved on the nickel-plated outer ring, which includes a banner bearing the bilingual words “REMEMBER”, “SOUVENIR” and the year “2018”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • The Armistice was signed in the early morning hours of November 11, 1918, but the fighting continued until it came into effect at 11 a.m.
  • The Armistice was a formal agreement to end the hostilities, a ceasefire—the war officially ended on June 28, 1919, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.

A collectible tribute to Canadian and Newfoundland  men and women who through their courage and sacrifice paved the way to peace. Order today.

Chantal

Lenny

Hello Lenny and thank you for asking. We unfortunately do not offer a waiting list.

Chantal

Where is the $2 Armistice coin that was supposed to be in circulation? I haven't seen any. Can you purchase one of these?

Bunnie

Hello Bunnie and thank you for asking. The coins have been released in circulation but please bare in mind, we released 2 million colored coins and 1 million of the non colored version. Many Canadians keep the coins they find in their change as a souvenir, they may be difficult to find. We do not sell them individually.

Chantal

Where in Calgary, AB can we purchase the townie with the red poppy?

Darlene inquisitor

Hello Darlene and thank you for asking. You can try your bank to find out if they have some. They have been released in circulation as well, therefore you may find some in your change.

Chantal

Hi. Is the toonie in this 6 piece collection colored with the poppy ?

Julia

Hello Julia and thank you for asking. The Armistice Commemorative Collector Keepsake contains two different versions (engraved-only and selectively coloured) of the new $2 Armistice Commemorative circulation coin.

Chantal

ROBERT

Hello Robert and thank you for asking. We have produced and now circulated the coins throughout Canada. Since this is a circulation coin, the banks or other institutions orders as per demand and $2 coins are sent. It is possible none of the new ones were in the boxes they ordered.

Chantal

Hello........is there a toonie with a red poppy in this collection? Thank you.

Jewel

Are the actual $2.00coins in the envelope or is this just the envelope to display these coins
