Order of Military Merit Design by Bruce W. Beatty, C.M., S.O.M., C.D.

Bruce W. Beatty, C.M., S.O.M., C.D. created the current insignia of the Order of Military Merit that has been manufactured at the Royal Canadian Mint since 2012. It is almost entirely faithful to the insignia that is given to the highest ranked members of the Order. It consists of a stunning blue cross at the center of which is a crowned circle. The rim of the circle bears the inscriptions "MERIT MERITE CANADA," while in the center is a red maple leaf set against a white background, closely mirroring the center of the Canadian flag. On the obverse is Susanna Blunt's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
