Celebrate Canada's legacy as a nation of peace with the 2021 Peace Dollar! Our nation is widely known for its dedication to peace, and that commitment - as well as its legacy - has been handed down and cherished by each new generation of Canadians. It was Canadian Lester B. Pearson who, in his capacity as Canadian Secretary of State for External Affairs, organized the very first UN peacekeeping force in 1957.His efforts earned him a Nobel Peace Prize and helped cement Canada's reputation as both a peacekeeping and peace-loving nation. That vision holds true today, as Canada continues to advocate for peace and freedom the world over. Our continued commitment to peace.

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. It was 100 years ago, in 1921, that the U. Mint issued the first Peace Dollar.
