Your coin's reverse features a detailed reproduction of the original Arms of Canada proclaimed by King George V on November 21, 1921. At the base of the Coat of Arms is a garland of floral emblems—the English rose, the Scottish thistle, the Irish shamrock and the French lily—and a scroll bearing the motto "A MARI USQUE AD MARE" ("From sea to sea"). At the centre is the shield; its upper quadrants feature the three lions of England, the lion of Scotland, the Irish harp of Tara and the fleurs-de-lis of Royal France, while the bottom portion features a sprig of three maple leaves. The supporters are based on those of the Royal Arms of the United Kingdom: to the left of the shield, the lion of England holds the Royal Union Flag, while on the right, the unicorn of Scotland carries the flag of Royal France. Above the shield is the royal helmet draped with mantling. Atop the royal helmet is the crest set on a wreath of twisted cloth, and is comprised of a crowned lion holding a maple leaf in its right paw. Above the crest is the imperial crown that represents the monarch as Canada's Head of State.
The reverse also features the engraved word "CANADA," the commemorative dates "1921 - 2021", and the face value, "20 DOLLARS". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty
Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know?
  • The official rendition of Canada's coat of arms has been revised three times since 1921: in 1923, when the Arms were slightly modified in style; in 1957, when the Arms were re-drawn to feature a modified Royal Crown and a sprig of red maple leaves in the shield; and in 1994, when an annulus bearing the motto of the Order of Canada, Desiderantes Meliorem Patriam ("They desire a better country"), was added behind the shield.
  • You could have your very own heraldic emblem! All Canadian citizens, municipalities and organizations are welcome to contact the Canadian Heraldic Authority to request the creation of their own heraldic emblem, whether it's a coat of arms, flag or badge. Part of the Canadian Honours System, heraldic emblems are granted in recognition of service to the community.

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