Description

Since 1971, the highest quality coins of the year have been presented for collectors by the Royal Canadian Mint in an annual presentation bound in a leather case. In recent years, the most exclusive version of the annual set has included all coins struck in pure silver, with selective gold highlighting on the most important coins. This 2020 limited edition proof set continues the tradition presenting the highest quality coins of each denomination issued in pure silver, plus a special issue commemorative silver dollar. Denominations include the 5 cent re-creation of the 1945 Victory nickel, 10 cent, 25 cent, 50 cent, loon style dollar, VE Day commemorative silver dollar and 2 dollar coins.

The three highest denomination coins are further enhanced with a selective overlay of 24 karat gold. This seven-piece set is the only opportunity to own a selectively gold-plated version of the 2020 V-E Day Proof Dollar. From the big “V” for Victory on the reverse to the privy mark on the obverse, the enhanced proof dollar includes several features that were inspired by the 1945 Victory nickel. Mintage is limited to just 15,000.

About the Proof Dollar Design
A selectively gold-plated “V” for Victory dominates the reverse design by artist Pandora Young. The crowd represents jubilation on the home front on May 8, 1945, a day when Canadians poured into streets and public places to celebrate Victory in Europe (V-E) Day. The spontaneous celebration gradually fades behind the “V” to become a scene of remembrance, with three silhouettes representing the different branches (navy, army and air force) of the Canadian and British Armed Forces in which Canadians and Newfoundlanders served. The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget and a Victory privy mark.
