Commemorate Remembrance Day with this beautifully designed coin paying tribute to the esteemed Canadian poem “In Flanders Fields.”

Written by Canadian military physician Lieutenant Colonel John McCrea, “In Flanders Fields” has become one of Canada’s most treasured poems. Following the Second Battle of Ypres during the First World War, the poem was written in remembrance of the fallen soldiers. Its reference to the red poppy that grew in Flanders Fields has since become an international symbol of remembrance for those who have died in conflict.  

Over the past 100 years, “In Flanders Fields” has been recited and red poppies are worn as a tribute to those who have fought for our country. Honour the 100th anniversary of John McCrea’s poem with this stunning and memorable coin. The backdrop is set with a striking red enamel poppy, which gives way to the two Canadian soldiers, quietly morning the loss of their fallen comrade. The obverse depicts the effigy of King George V as it was used on Canadian coins throughout the period of the First World War.

A beautiful and unique addition to any Canadian history collection, buy yours today!
