In 1915 Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae wrote the immortal poem "In Flanders Fields".   The poem refers to the fields of red poppies that grew between the graves of the soldiers that died in the Battles of Ypres.  The poem first published anonymously in Great Britain, quickly grew in popularity throughout the English speaking world.  It was used in propaganda efforts and appeals to sell war bonds and recruit solders.  The red poppy became a widely recognized symbol to remember soldiers that died in conflicts.  In 2015 Canada marked the 100th anniversary of John McCrea’s famous poem with circulating commemorative 2 Dollar and 25 Cent coins.  The center section of the bi-metallic 2 Dollar coin depicts McCrea penning the poem.  In the background is a lark and crosses marking the soldiers’ graves.  The outer rim features poppies and Canadian Maple Leafs.  Two versions of the copper-nickel 25 cent coin were issued, one with a realistic color depiction of a red poppy.  The other features an uncolored poppy.  All three coin depict Queen Elizabeth on the obverse and are Uncirculated.

Canada portrayed heroes of the War of 1812 on circulating 25 cent coins. The war, between Great Britain and the United States, helped define Canadian nationhood and prevented the United States from annexing Canada.  Each coin was issued in two versions: one with a red maple leaf with the date 1812 in white script.  The other features the portrait with a frosted finish and an uncolored maple leaf.  The 2012 issues honored Shawnee Chief Tecumseh and Major General Sir Isaac Brock. Tecumseh led a confederation of Indian tribes that fought the United States and tried to form an Indian nation under British protection.  After he was killed in battle by the Americans in 1813 his confederation fell apart. The British abandoned their Indian allies in the peace conference that ended the war.  The Americans took possession of the territory and drove the Indians onto reservations or further west.  Tecumseh is portrayed wearing a British Indian peace medal bearing the portrait of George III.  Sir Isaac Brock successfully defeated attempts by the United States to invade Canada.  He and Tecumseh joined forces to defeat a larger American army at Fort Detroit in 1812.   The 2013 issues depicts Lieutenant Colonel Charles-Michel de Salaberry and Laura Secord.  During the War of 1812 de Salaberry's Voltigeurs Canadiens militia helped protect Montreal from the United States.   During Battle of Châteauguay in October 1813 his force of 1700 turned back an American force of some 3000 troops.  In 1813 Laura Secord walked 20 miles out of American occupied territory to warn British forces of an impending attack.    Queen Elizabeth is on the obverse of all the coins. All coins are Brilliant Uncirculated.

NEWPOPULAR 1965 CANADA SILVER PROOF-LIKE SET

Canada 1965 mint set, obverseCanada 1965 mint set, reverse
This six coin Proof-like from the Royal Canadian Mint includes the silver dollar, 50 cents, 25 cents and 10 cents struck in .800 fine silver, as well as the nickel 5 cents and bronze 1 cent.  The coins come were specially struck with a mirror-like surface and come in their original Royal Canadian Mint packaging.  The sets contain 1.11 troy ounces of silver. The sets were issued at the height of the 1960’s coin boom. The 1965 set featured the new Arnold Machin portrait of Queen Elizabeth. And the U.S. mint had just halted the manufacturing of Proof sets, all of which sparked further interest in the sets.  Sales were by mail only, starting January 2, 1965, and were limited to only five sets per order.   Dealers, investors and collectors flooded Ottawa, crowding the post offices nearest the mint to place multiple orders.  The sets sold out within a few hours and many orders were sent back.  Temporary workers were hired to process the orders and the mint ordered additional presses to fill the demand.  Eventually Canada re-opened the sales for the set, but backlog was so great that many of the 1965 sets were not delivered until 1966.   We have this attractive and popular Proof-like set in their original mint packaging at a modest premium above their melt value. We also have a few original unopened mint sealed boxes of five 1965 Canadian Proof-like sets.  Few of the original mint sealed boxes still exist today, making them a real collector’s item!

CANADA'S MORSE CODE VICTORY COINS

Canada 5 Cents 1943 KM40 Morse Code "V-Nickel"On January 1, 1943 Canada released a new design for their 5-cent coin to promote the war effort of World War II. The reverse featured a large "V" behind a burning torch.  The V both stood for Victory and the denomination in Roman numerals).  Even though the coin is not made of nickel, it is often referred to as Canada's V Nickel.  Around the edge is the inscription in Morse code which reads "WE WIN WHEN WE WORK WILLINGLY". The twelve-sided coin depicts King George VI on the obverse.  The coin was made of a brass alloy called Tombac.  Because copper was needed for the war effort, in 1944 and 1945 the metal was changed to chrome plated steel.  In 1946, after victory had been achieved, the beaver reverse was resumed.
