2019 (1944-) Canadian $20 Second World War Battlefront Series: The Normandy Campaign - 1 oz Fine Silver Coin


It began on Juno Beach, and it continued at Buron, Autie, Carpiquet, Caen, Falaise. The D-Day landings of June 6, 1944, were a success. But the costly path to victory in Normandy would take Canada’s troops through towns and villages, where they became embroiled in a battle of attrition against some of the enemy’s best troops: the elite Panzer divisions. Steeled by combat experience, the wary soldier from the 2019 Proof Dollar is now the image of steely resolve on this 1 oz. pure silver coin. The latest instalment in our Second World War: Battlefront Series commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Normandy Campaign (June 6-August 30, 1944). While your coin shows Canadian troops advancing beyond the beaches, D-Day and the beginning of the Liberation of Western Europe are represented by sound waves that stand in for the “V” for “Victory” radio signal.

Commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Normandy Campaign with this poignant coin. Order today.

Design

Designed by Brad Anderson, the reverse finds a Canadian infantry soldier advancing during the Normandy Campaign (June 6-August 30, 1944). He is flanked by an LCA carrier used at Juno Beach, and a Sherman III D-Drive tank that symbolizes Canada’s armoured divisions. To mark the beginning of the Liberation of Western Europe, the air is filled with the “sound” of victory ringing out in the form of sound waves, which represent “V” for “Victory” in Morse code—a nod to D-Day radio broadcasts. The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget.


Packaging

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a custom beauty box.
