2020 Recognition Medal and Magnet


Product # 245633


This special medal pays tribute to the tremendous contributions of essential workers in all fields across Canada, as well Canadians who are keeping people safe, healthy and connected as we face the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The maple leaf and heart as one symbolize Canadians coming together in embrace as we help those in need. The pulsating technology brings the strong heartbeat of our country to life. The second side, created by the Mint’s in-house team of designers, represents our grateful spirit. The heart in the centre of the group symbolizes Canadians coming together in appreciation for our essential workers. We recognize their dedication and bravery, and the micro text represents the thankful voices of a nation.

100% of the proceeds are going to the Breakfast Club of Canada COVID-19 Emergency Fund to support Canadian children facing food insecurity now and in months to come.

The medal is made of nickel-plated steel that makes it magnetic. To wear your medal, choose the side you wish to display on your clothing and place the magnet on the other side of the fabric.
