EXCLUSIVE: A coloured version of our D-Day proof dollar.

This seven-piece set brings you a 99.99% pure silver selectively coloured version of our 2019 Proof Dollar. Resembling a black-and-white photograph, your coin has a touch of gold colour that adds another side to the story. It places emphasis on a wedding ring—a reminder of the personal sacrifices made by all who fought in Normandy.

Special features:
  • A SET EXCLUSIVE: Includes a selectively coloured version of the 2019 Proof Dollar, struck in 99.99% pure silver that is only available as part of this set.
  • LIKE A BLACK-AND-WHITE PHOTOGRAPH: While the 2019 Proof Dollar focuses on the young soldier, this selectively coloured version places the focus on a gesture that is also part of the story. It is a poignant reminder of the cost of war and the sacrifices made.
  • A DIFFERENT TAKE ON HISTORY: The 2019 Proof Dollar commemorates the 75th anniversary of D-Day by re-creating a real-life moment that was caught on film. The reverse is a tribute to courage, and shows the historic event from the perspective of those who fought to come ashore on June 6, 1944.
  • INCLUDES THE ELUSIVE 50-CENT COIN: Every Canadian denomination is represented in this set, including the elusive 50-cent coin.
  • BOOK-STYLE PACKAGING: Your coins are elegantly presented in a book-style packaging made of maroon pleather.
  • CAREFULLY HAND-SELECTED: Every coin has been carefully hand-selected to ensure you get the best samples of their kind.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coin sets.

Proof Dollar Design:

Selectively coloured to resemble a black-and-white photograph, your coin’s design by Tony Bianco steps back in time to the morning of June 6, 1944, as the first wave of Canadian troops storms Juno Beach. The scene shares the same inspiration as the Juno Beach Centre Association’s D-Day anniversary logo; it re-creates a moment caught on film when the North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment landed on Nan Red Beach (La Rive Plage). An infantry soldier has a strained expression on his face after surveying what lies ahead—this is his first real combat experience. A reassuring pat is a touching moment of humanity and a gesture of solidarity amid enemy fire and fear. But the gold-coloured wedding ring is also a reminder of the cost of war, of loved ones back home. In the sky above, a sequence of dots and dashes represent the letter V (for “Victory”) in Morse code; they allude to the radio broadcasts that announced the Allied landings that day. The reverse includes the word “CANADA”, the double dates “1944” and “2019”, and the face value “DOLLAR”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
