King Charles III Coronation Medal

In commemoration of His Majesty King Charles III’s Coronation, nominations are now open for the King Charles Coronation Medal.  

These medals recognize individuals of all ages and from all walks of life who have made significant contributions to Canada, their province, territory, region, or community.  

As a nominating partner, I invite you to help me highlight the achievements of members in the Fort McMurray-Cold Lake community by nominating them for a coronation medal.  

The deadline to nominate an individual for this distinguished honor is July 31, 2024.

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.


Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for this honour, a person must have:  

  • Made significant contributions to the country, a province, territory, region or community, or made an outstanding achievement abroad that brings credit to Canada; and  
  • Been alive on May 6, 2023, the date His Majesty was crowned. Nominations can be made posthumously, as long as the nominee was alive on that date.  

The Medal may only be awarded once.
