Allies in war became allies for peace. A promise the world must not forget.

Peace. Tolerance. Equality. These are values we uphold today, as we did 75 years ago when the devastation of war gave way to a new era of cooperation. On the 75th anniversary of the United Nations (UN), Canada's 2020 $1 circulation coin celebrates our nation's role as a Founding Member and a contributor to world peace. Grouped together in a keepsake collector card, this seven-piece set includes both versions (uncoloured and coloured) of our special $1 coin commemorative circulation coin, which highlights our role as global citizens helping to make the world a better place. The set also includes one of each Canadian coin denomination issued in 2020.

UN at 75: Celebrate Canada's contributions to the United Nations with a commemorative $1 coin — two versions included in this set! Order today†.

Special features:
  • SYMBOLIC DESIGN: A $1 circulation coin that commemorates the 75th anniversary of the United Nations (UN) and its Charter. The design reflects Canada's pride in our contributions to the founding of the UN, its milestones, and the continuing promotion of international peace.
  • TWO VERSIONS OF A SPECIAL-EDITION DOLLAR: This set includes two versions of the special $1 coin: an uncoloured edition and a colour version that features a maple leaf clad in a very Canadian red.
  • 2020 - THE YEAR IN COINS: Enclosed in a display-worthy collector card, this set features uncirculated versions of Canadian circulation coins issued in 2020.
  • SEVEN COINS IN TOTAL: Every Canadian circulation coin denomination is represented in this set, including five classic designs ($2, $1, 25-, 10- and 5-cent coins) plus two versions of the special themed $1 coin.
  • CANADA'S FIRST COLOURED $1 CIRCULATION COIN IS HERE: On the selectively coloured $1 coin, the maple leaf is clad in red, and the laurel leaves are coloured blue.

Design:
The reverse design by Joel Kimmel is double dated ("1945-2020") to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations and its Charter ("UN CHARTER   CHARTRE DE L'ONU"). In a nod to the UN logo, a world map within an olive branch wreath is paired with a maple leaf to symbolize Canada's commitment to the UN and its values.  In the selectively coloured $1 coin, the maple leaf is clad in red. Both versions include a laser mark of a single maple leaf inscribed in a circle. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know...
  • Canada remains committed to the principles outlined in the UN Charter. The Charter represents a pledge between Member States to work together to resolve conflicts, promote development, champion human rights and maintain peace.
  • The first official use of the name "United Nations" appeared in the Declaration by United Nations signed on January 1, 1942. This precursor to the UN Charter, also known as the Atlantic Charter, was the product of a secret meeting at sea between President Franklin D. Roosevelt (United States) and Prime Minister Winston Churchill (United Kingdom). In fact, the meeting took place off the coast of Ship Harbour, N.L., in Placentia Bay.
