Canada and the United States Unite to Celebrate Peace & Liberty

In Ottawa, Ontario, a large granite arch rises over a group of 22 soldiers in Canada’s Confederation Square. Topped by two bronze sculptures – female personifications of Peace and Liberty – the arch is Canada’s National War Memorial, and one of the country’s most revered sites. Those two poetic statues now form the basis of a ground-breaking series that brings two of the world’s most accomplished coin designers together on one spectacular program: Canada’s 2019 Peace & Liberty Silver Medal!

This release marks the first time ever that artists from the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) and the U.S. Mint have come together to design a medal! Retired RCM Senior Engraver Susan Taylor designed the “Peace” side of the medal while former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti brings us the exquisite “Liberty” on the obverse.

Not only was this fabulous medal minted in a full kilo of highly pure 99.99% fine silver – the largest Peace & Liberty medal ever produced – but it is struck with a stunning Reverse Proof finish. That means this medal is crafted with frosty fields and shimmering details – the opposite of a traditional proof finish that has mirrored fields and frosted details. In addition, the 2019 Canada Peace & Liberty Reverse Proof One-Kilo Silver Medal has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded proof will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended.

In addition, NGC has graded your proof to be a First Day of Issue (FDI) piece, meaning it was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository by the release date or on the business day within 24 hours of the official release date. Your proof also comes sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with dual signature labels on both sides. The “Peace” side was signed by Susan Taylor and the “Liberty” Side was signed by John Mercanti.

The Royal Canadian Mint has set the maximum worldwide limited edition for this first-ever collaborative proof at just 325 – a ridiculously small number for all the collectors north and south of the border would like to own this first-ever silver proof. Make sure you’re one of those lucky few and click it to your cart today!

  • HISTORIC NUMISMATIC TEAM-UP – This released marks the first time in history that a medal has been designed by artists from both the Royal Canadian Mint and the U.S. Mint.

  • FABULOUS REVERSE PROOF FINISH – Minted with a Reverse Proof finish, this medal is struck with frosty fields and shimmering details – the opposite of a traditional proof finish that has mirrored fields and frosted details.
