- Our flagship coin. A bestseller since 1937, the annual proof dollar is one of the most sought-after coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint. The 2019 edition commemorates the 75th anniversary of D-Day (June 6, 1944).
- On the reverse, a simple gesture reminds us of the courage of the Canadians who carried the weight of history with them during the D-Day landings. And in the sky above: the letter V for “Victory” in Morse code.
- A first step. The 2019 Proof Dollar is your first step in a year-long journey of commemoration and remembrance that stretches across several coins. Our young soldier’s story is part of Canada’s story in the $100 14-Karat Gold Coin - 75th Anniversary of The Normandy Campaign: D-Day at Juno Beach and it continues on the $125 Fine Silver Coin - 75th Anniversary of the Normandy Campaign: Operation Tonga.
