Each Peace Dollar is a powerful representation of Canada's ongoing dedication to universal human rights and world peace. Before becoming Prime Minister of Canada, Lester B. Pearson was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 1957 for organizing the first UN peacekeeping force. In the decades since, UN peacekeepers have helped de-escalate conflicts and save lives throughout the world.
That legacy of peace and international cooperation is reflected on the reverse of the 65.25 mm reverse of this 5 oz. 99.99% pure silver coin.
It combines three extraordinary features: Ultra High Relief (UHR), rose gold plating (new for 2023), and a specially engineered pattern that pulses with hope for a peaceful and prosperous future. Each Peace Dollar coin's reverse features selective rose gold plating and a pulsating pattern behind the allegorical image of peace designed by retired RCM Senior Engraver Susan Taylor. Struck in Ultra High Relief (UHR), Lady Peace is depicted in profile with her hair crowned in a wreath of maple leaves and olive branches. She is flanked by her name, "PAX" (the Latin word for "Peace"), and the year "2023", while Canada's national motto, "A MARI USQUE AD MARE" ("From sea to sea") appears overhead.
The obverse also features selective rose gold plating and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Note: The obverse of the 5 oz.
Pure silver Peace Dollar features a magnified, lasered/non-pulsating version of the pattern on the reverse. Back by popular demand: A 5 oz. 99.99% pure silver Peace Dollar! And for 2023, your coin's reverse combines Ultra High Relief (UHR) and pulsating technology with rose gold plating, which beautifully enhances the already inspiring portrait of peace ("PAX"). New for 2023, your Peace Dollar features rose gold plating on the coin's obverse and reverse, where the uplifting background colour and fine silver relief form a captivating high-contrast design.
UHR technology lifts the allegory of peace to greater heights by adding extra depth and detail. Your Peace Dollar's reverse features a pulsating pattern that appears to expand and contract when your coin is tipped. This visual effect is caused by an array of sub-millimetre-scale mirrors, which have been micro-engineered and precisely engraved to reflect light and create the illusion of motion. Coin's 65 mm diameter allows more space for engraved details, and on its reverse, the pulsating pattern is much larger than the one engraved on the 1 oz.Fine silver and pure gold Peace Dollars. On your coin's obverse, the laser-engraved geometric pattern is a magnified (and non-pulsating) view of the micro-engraved mirrors that form the pulsating pattern on the reverse.
