The eighth Battlefront coin commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Scheldt, a battle that helped forge the close bond between Canada and the Netherlands. Topped by the insignia of the First Canadian Army, the design salutes the Canadians who battled the enemy and the elements to capture the Scheldt and give the Allies a critical supply lifeline.

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Scheldt (1944-2019), artist Mary McPherson presents a realistic portrait of a Canadian Ojibwa soldier in action in the fall of 1944. The insignia of the First Canadian Army appears above the infantryman, who wields a Bren gun while advancing past a tower mill. A Wasp MKII C flamethrower universal carrier backs the infantry advance from atop an embankment near the Scheldt River. The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T.H. Paget.
