MIKO MACIASZEK | NEW COIN DESIGN REMEMBRANCE DAY FOR ROYAL CANADIAN MINT
November 10, 2022 Miko Maciaszek
We’re so honoured to share this gorgeous new coin art design by #lcmartist Miko Maciaszek specially commissioned by the Royal Canadian Mint. Miko had the opportunity to design the 1 oz. Pure Silver Coin for Remembrance Day. Who better to draw the red poppy?
“Designed by artist Miko Maciaszek, the coin’s reverse features a poignant depiction of a weary Captain of the Canadian Army Medical Corps sitting against a tree and taking a moment to reflect after the Second Battle of Ypres, during the First World War. Selective colour highlights the blooming poppies in the foreground, while in the background; more poppies appear between the crosses that mark the graves of the fallen. These poppies represent hope and eternal life through Remembrance, and serve as a reminder that a soldier’s sacrifice should never be forgotten. ”
