In 1994, Royal Canadian Mint launched a commemorative 1-dollar coin depicting the National War Memorial. The National War Memorial is a tall, granite memorial arch with accreted bronze sculptures in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, designed by Vernon March and first dedicated by King George VI in 1939. Originally built to commemorate the Canadians who died in the First World War, it was in 1982 rededicated to also include those killed in the Second World War and Korean War and again in 2014 to add the dead from the Second Boer War and War in Afghanistan, as well as all Canadians killed in all conflicts past and future. It now serves as the pre-eminent war memorial of 76 cenotaphs in Canada. In 2000, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was added in front of the memorial and symbolizes the sacrifices made by all Canadians who have died or may yet die for their country. On October 5th, 2017, Royal Canadian Mint will unveiled a new 2-dollars circulation coin to commemorate the Battle of Vimy Ridge. #1dollar #canadiandollar #canadiancoins #canada #wwi #wwii #worldwar #koreanwar #afghanistanwar #1994 #ottawa #memorial #nationalwarmemorial #unknownsoldier #soldier #canadianmint #georgevi #canadians #secondworldwar #firstworldwar #vimy #battleofvimy #bronze #ontario #canadiancurrency #onedollar #dollar

Torfast and Ingelug (Inglรถg? Anyone?) raised this stone after Kerbjรถrn, their son. Names again. They make little sense until I start spelling the runes out loud, and even then it's more guessing than I'd like it to be. . . . . . . . #run#runes #safari #norse #familytrip #runes #memorial #death #remembrance #mementomori #pathwork #outdoors #thursatru #theworkmustcontinue #carved #againstthemodernworld #timetolive #timetolift #startliving #familyouting #oldtimes #fatherhood #amateur #interpretation #timetoread #bookworm #anonymous #blinddeath #asmalladventure #mytribe #ExterminationTroops
