Description

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. Mintage is limited to just 15,000. 


The Design:

The proof silver dollar design features 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 Eu rope (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.
