The 2020 75th Anniversary of the End of the Second World War $2 commemorative circulation coin places a piece of our history in your pocket … but a Special Wrap Roll instantly adds 25 of them to your collection. The 2020 $2 75th Anniversary of the End of the Second World War Coloured Coin Special Wrap Roll gives you 25 coloured versions of the $2 commemorative coin.
The reverse of both coloured and uncoloured versions pays tribute to the Victory nickel designed by Thomas Shingles (“T.S.”). On the inner core, a “V” for Victory is overlaid with a flaming torch and flanked by maple leaves, while the double dates “1945” and “2020” commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. At the top of the outer ring, two images of a maple leaf appear within the line pattern. The words “VICTORY” and “VICTOIRE” are framed by an inscription in International (Morse) Code; when translated, the dots and dashes mean “WE WIN WHEN WE WORK WILLINGLY” and “LA BONNE VOLONTÉ EST GAGE DE VICTOIRE”. At the bottom of the outer ring, the inscriptions “REMEMBER” and “SOUVENIR” are paired with two security marks consisting of a maple leaf within another maple leaf. Enhanced with selective colour, the reverse of the coloured coin adds a deep blue colour to the “V” symbol and a mix of orange and yellow to the silver torch’s flame.
The obverse features the word “CANADA”, the denomination (“2 DOLLARS”) and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
