The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal honours Canadians for their outstanding service and contributions to Canada. The Diamond Jubilee Medal was created to mark the 60th Anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II accession to the throne.
The design of The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was developed by the Canadian Heraldic Authority and approved by Her Majesty The Queen. The medal is manufactured by the Royal Canadian Mint.
The obverse depicts an image of the Sovereign, in whose name the medal is bestowed. The reverse marks the 60th-or 'diamond'-anniversary of the accession to the Throne of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The anniversary is expressed by the central diamond shape, by the background composed of a pattern of diamonds, and by the two dates, 1952 and 2012. The maple leaves refer to Canada, while the Latin motto VIVAT REGINA means "Long live The Queen!"
The ribbon uses a new arrangement of the blue, red and white colours found in the 1953 Coronation Medal, the 1977 Silver Jubilee Medal, and the 2002 Golden Jubilee Medal.
