A Canadian commemorative medal has been created to mark His Majesty King Charles III’s Coronation on May 6, 2023. The King Charles III Coronation Medal is a visible and tangible way to recognize 30 000 outstanding individuals of all ages and from all walks of life who have made a difference in their communities.

To ensure the broadest possible recognition, several partners have been invited to nominate candidates from their communities or organizations for this national honour. Your contribution as a nominating partner is greatly appreciated.

This medal program is administered by the Chancellery of Honours, as part of the Office of the Secretary to the Governor General (OSGG).

About the Medal

The Medal was designed by the Canadian Heraldic Authority, approved by His Majesty The King and manufactured by the Royal Canadian Mint. On the obverse is a contemporary crowned effigy of His Majesty King Charles III in coronation robes, circumscribed with the inscriptions “CHARLES III DEI GRATIA REX” and the word “CANADA”. The reverse bears a depiction of the Royal Cypher (the King’s monogram surmounted by the Canadian Royal Crown) with the inscriptions “6-V-2023” and “VIVAT REX” to the left and right of the Royal Cypher, respectively, all placed over the sunburst design of the Canadian Coronation emblem. The Medal is worn suspended from a ribbon of dark blue, bright red and white colours evocative of the 1902 Edward VII Coronation Medal, one of the earliest coronation medals awarded to Canadians.
