Description Technical Specs Extended Information
On June 6, 1944, about 14,000 Canadians stormed Juno Beach during the Allied landings in Normandy. Coming under heavy enemy fire, Canadian forces advanced farther inland that day than any other Allied landing force—but success on D-Day was only the beginning of a longer, hard-fought campaign. This seven-piece proof set features an exclusive gold-plated version of the 2019 Proof Dollar, which commemorates the 75th anniversary of D-Day by putting a touchingly human face on a key historic event.
The proof dollar reverse image 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). Highlighted by selective gold plating, 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, while the wedding ring is a reminder 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.

Gold plating adds an extra touch of luxury to the this annual proof set. Enclosed in book-style packaging, the seven-piece collection brings you 99.99% pure silver versions of each denomination—including the 50-cent coin—and an enhanced version of the D-Day commemorative proof dollar for 2019 that is exclusive to this set.
