2015 is the 100th anniversary of the poem, In Flanders Fields, written by Canadian Doctor Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. His poem expressed the sadness embodied by the sixty thousand young Canadians who died during WWI.

Canadian artist Laurie McGaw has created a wonderful tribute to McCrae, featuring a side profile of him writing his poem amongst fallen soldiers graves. There are wild poppies at his back and an ambulance in front of him as a reminder of McCrae's medical role with the Canadian brigade.

This coin is a solemn remembrance of those who bravely served their country abroad–lest we forget. A symbolic gift for those in the military, or as a tribute to loved ones lost at war.

This coin is encapsulated and sits in a clam shell which ships in a full colour box.
