Created in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the declaration of the Second World War, these coins pays tribute to the personal sacrifices made by Canadians at home and abroad.

The Design:

The reverse image is a reproduction of the iconic photograph known as "Wait for Me, Daddy," which was taken on October 1, 1940, in New Westminster, B.C. by photographer Claude Dettloff. The men of the B.C. Regiment, the Duke of Connaught's Own Rifles, form an impressive line as they march down the street. But the focus of the image is on the real and touching scene of one family that is saying goodbye. In the centre of the image field, a pale-haired young boy has broken free of his mother's grasp to reach out to his uniformed father, who is marching off to war. The father has turned to smile at his son; shifting his rifle to the other hand, he reaches out to his son one last time before they are to be separated by war.
