In 1995 the United Nations celebrated its 50th Anniversary. To mark the occasion the Royal Canadian Mint special one year circulating commemorative dollar formally titled as "the Peacekeeping coin" and pays tribute to the Canadians who have served as UN peacekeepers.


The reverse design features a representation of the Peacekeeping Monument in Ottawa, Canada and on the outer periphery are the words "CANADA" and "DOLLAR".

The obverse, designed by Dora de Pedery Hunt, was the same as the previous Loonie series with the exception of a dual date (the date on normal dollar coins is on the reverse).
