Poutine originated in rural Quebec, Canada, in the late 1950's. In the basic recipe for poutine, the french fries are topped with fresh cheese curds and covered with brown gravy or sauce.  Poutine from Quebec CanadaThe french fries are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.       The gravy is usually a light chicken, veal or turkey   gravy, mildly     spiced with a hint of pepper, or a sauce brune, which is a combination of beef and chicken stock. The fresh cheese curds and the gravy are added just before serving, to keep the french fries crunchy.

In honour of all those who have served our country, the Royal Canadian Mint has been proudly issuing commemorative coins and keepsakes to mark Remembrance Day.

2004 Canadian Colored Poppy Quarter

 In 2004, the Royal Canadian Mint issued the 25-cent Poppy coin, the worlds first coloured circulation coin. The red poppy, Canada's flower of rememberance, stamped on the reverse with pressurized ink had an innovative fluorescent security coating and quickly became a collector's item. Thirty million coins went into circulation in October, 2004. At the Mint Directors' Conference (MDC) in Paris, France, the 2004 coloured poppy coin was named the Most Innovative Circulation Coin.
The Royal Canadian Mint has issued circulation quarters emblazoned with a red poppy in honour of Remembrance Day in 2008 and 2010. The 2010 quarter featured a duo of iconic red poppies, replacing the caribou, and was developed in association with the Royal Canadian Legion.
