In Flanders Fields, the poppies blow/ Between the crosses, row on row…
The sight of poppies growing in the battle-scarred fields of Flanders inspired a Canadian to pen a future anthem of remembrance, which forever immortalized the blood-red flower as a memorial emblem for war, peace, service, and most of all, sacrifice. Canada’s Flower of Remembrance blooms symbolically each November, on the anniversary of Armistice, when Canadians wear the poppy with solemn pride. But the flower will forever be in bloom on this supremely crafted showpiece, whose swirling arrangement reminds us of the maelstrom that was the First World War and the countless sacrifices that paved the way for peace.
Commemorate the Armistice of 1918 with this stunning gold coin with red poppy.
