As Canada prepares for nation-wide Remembrance Day ceremonies on the 65th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, the Royal Canadian Mint, in association with the Royal Canadian Legion, is proud to issue its latest coloured circulation coin, featuring a duo of iconic red poppies; Canada's flower of remembrance.
For all Canadians, the poppy is a poignant symbol of remembrance. By remembering the sacrifices they've made, we’re really saying "Thank you."
