About the Proof Dollar Design:

June 6, 1944 will forever be remembered as “D-Day”, and this commemorative silver dollar marks the 75th anniversary of the historic landing of Canadian soldiers on Juno Beach as part of Operation Overlord.  


Through extreme bravery of Canadian and other Allied forces, the successful landing on the beaches of Normandy, France would quickly turn the tide of the war.  This 2019 fine silver dollar re-creates a moment caught on film when the North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment landed on the Nan Red portion of Juno Beach.  Canadian infantry soldiers are seen in full battle gear as they disembark from a Landing Craft Assault vehicle and make their way to the beach and into heavy enemy fire.  In the foreground, one soldier looks back at the viewer, a hand is on the soldiers back in a gesture of encouragement as the soldiers follow each other into the low Atlantic tide. In the sky above the letter “V” for “Victory” appears in Morse code.
