Created in 2012 to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada, the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country.

At the same time, this commemorative medal served to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.

During the year of celebrations, 60 000 deserving Canadians were recognised.
