They are the brave; the heroic; the everyday Canadians who, over the course of nine terrible hours of fighting, would prove a nation's mettle under a relentless hail of enemy fire. We remember the Dieppe Raid as an example of the bravery and steadfastness of Canadians, even on our darkest day of the war, when nearly 5,000 of our airmen, sailors, and soldiers took part in the raid on the occupied French port—but only 2,200 returned. The poignant design of your pure silver coin reflects on the legacy of that fateful day in 1942. It is a heartfelt thank you to the veterans of the Dieppe Raid for their heroism, service and sacrifices, and a haunting tribute to the spirit of all our combatants who fought at Puys, Pourville, and on Dieppe's pebble beach.

A moving tribute in 99.99% pure silver to commemorate the Dieppe Raid. Order today.

Design:
Artist Laurie McGaw bridges the past and present with the poignant image of a Canadian veteran returning to the site of the 1942 landing at Dieppe, France. Standing at the water's edge, the decorated veteran leans on his cane with his right arm raised in an open-palm salute. Prominently pinned on his blazer are two campaign stars—the 1939-45 Star and the France and Germany Star—alongside the Defence Medal, the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal with the Dieppe Bar and the Overseas Bar, and the War Medal. Behind him are the alabaster cliffs that gave the enemy a commanding view of the beach below, where Canadians came ashore under heavy enemy fire. Reflected on the water's surface, the appearance of Canadian soldiers standing at attention is an additional act of remembrance for Canada's combatants, whose actions and sacrifice at Dieppe will not be forgotten. The reverse includes the words "THE DIEPPE RAID LE RAID SUR DIEPPE" engraved on a banner, along with the word "CANADA" and the year "2018". The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget.
