2019 Special Edition Silver Dollar Proof Set: 75th Anniversary of D-Day Resembling a black-and-white photograph, your coin has a touch of gold colour that adds another side to the story. It places emphasis on a wedding ring-a reminder of the personal sacrifices made by all who fought in Normandy. Selectively coloured to resemble a black-and-white photograph, your coin's design 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).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. But the gold-coloured wedding ring is also a reminder of the cost of war, 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.
