2004 (1944-) Canadian 5-Cent D-Day Landing 60th Anniv Sterling Silver Coin & Medallion Gift Set   

 

It was June 6, 1944, when 14,000 Canadian soldiers landed on Juno Beach. 

The fighting was fierce, but the Canadians managed to establish a Canadian beachhead before capturing St-Aubin, Courseulles and Berniers. One Canadian regiment succeeded in advancing 15 km (9.3 mi) inland - the only Allied unit to achieve its final objective. With victory on D-Day, the end of the war had begun. Courage in the face of adversity - this is a tribute that every collection must have!

 

Features

- Salute the courage of Canada's heroes with the 2004 5-Cent Sterling Silver Coin brimming with historical significance, its design is a replica of the tombac 5-cent coin that was issued to replace the traditional nickel during the war. It features Winston Churchill's famous 'V for Victory' with a torch. Along the rim of the coin, small dots and bars spell out, 'We Win When We Work Willingly' in international code. 
- Includes an exclusive bronze medallion that features the same D-Day design, but with an effigy from that historic time on the obverse. It is the portrait of His Majesty King George VI, Canada's celebrated monarch who took a symbolic stand with Winston during 'our finest hour' by refusing to leave Buckingham Palace.
