It is a powerful tribute to the one and the many.
Depicted on this selectively coloured 99.99% pure silver coin from the Royal Canadian Mint, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in front of the National War Memorial in Ottawa, Ontario, honours those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation, and serves as the centrepiece of Canada’s Remembrance Day ceremonies. It is the place where generations of Canadians come to pay homage to the fallen, and to place it a red poppy that honours the sacrifices made in the name of freedom and peace.
A nation’s pledge to never forget. Set at a hallowed site of national remembrance, the scene on the coin’s reverse depicts a Veteran involving his grandchild in an act of Remembrance, thereby helping to ill be carried forward by each new generation of Canadians.
