FIRST 2022 Moments to Hold coin celebrates 50 years of ordinary people doing extraordinary things

Here's to the heroes among us! The Medal of Bravery recognizes those who have risked injury, even death, to save the lives of others! From bystander interventions in drownings and fiery rescues to saving someone from an animal attack—these are some of the "acts of bravery in hazardous circumstances" recognized by Canada's Medal of Bravery throughout its 50-year history. Those who have been awarded this decoration may not consider themselves as heroes, but their selflessness is one of our great strengths, and worthy of one of Canada's highest honours.

Join us in celebrating a half-century of heroism with this Moments to Hold coin that puts 50 years of bravery in the palm of your hand. Order today!


In 1972, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II established a group of medals recognizing courageous acts: the Cross of Valour, the Star of Courage and the Medal of Bravery. These are Canada's Decorations for Bravery, which are awarded based on the degree of peril faced by the recipients. The Medal of Bravery is one of Canada's best known civilian honours for acts of exceptional courage. Since its inception, the Medal of Bravery has been awarded by the Governor General of Canada to nearly 3,300 people—Canadians and others, civilians and combatants, living and deceased—in recognition of "acts of bravery in hazardous circumstances" that range from animal attacks to burning buildings. The act of bravery does not have to take place in Canada, but it should involve at least one Canadian and/or Canadian interests. Any person or organization can nominate someone they feel deserves the Medal of Bravery. Nominations must be submitted to the Chancellery of Honours at Rideau Hall within two years of the incident.

  • A CANADIAN CELEBRATION OF COURAGE! While it commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Medal of Bravery, this coin is also a proud celebration of a half-century of ordinary Canadians doing extraordinary things. It is an expression of gratitude to the medal's recipients for their willingness to risk their lives to protect or save another person.

The coin's reverse resembles Canada's Medal of Bravery, which recognizes "acts of bravery in hazardous circumstances." A maple leaf is surrounded by a laurel wreath on the coin's reverse, which also includes the medal's obverse inscription, "BRAVERY BRAVOURE", and the dates "1972 - 2022" to commemorate the medal's 50th anniversary. The coin's obverse indicates a face value of "5 DOLLARS" and features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


  • The first medals were awarded in July 1972, just two months after the Medal of Bravery's inception. The silver medal is worn suspended from a red ribbon with three blue stripes; for female recipients, the same ribbon is fashioned into a bow.
  • You don't have to be Canadian to be awarded the Medal of Bravery—in fact, the act of bravery could even take place outside of Canada, so long as it involves at least one Canadian and/or Canadian interests.
  • Post-nominals are sets of letters placed after one's name to denote select honours, qualifications or appointments—they're generally used in official correspondence or formal documents. Recipients of the Medal of Bravery are entitled to have the letters "M.B." placed after their names (e.g. John Doe, M.B.).
  • This isn't the first Canadian coin to feature the Medal of Bravery design: it appeared on a commemorative 25-cent circulation coin issued in 2006, as well as a Special Edition Proof Silver Dollar and a Limited-Edition Proof Silver Dollar with colour enamel. It's also featured on a 1 oz. 99.99% pure silver commemoration of this medal's milestone anniversary in 2022!


The coin comes in a colourful gift card folder with a removable coin capsule that allows easy access to the Moments to Hold collectible.
