Our ninth Battlefront coin steps away from the battle to show a child’s eye view of the Liberation of the Netherlands (1945). The commemorative design shows Canada’s troops receiving a hero’s welcome at the end of the Second World War, when a lasting bond was formed between two nations. And like all coins in our 2020 V-E Day collection, the obverse includes a special Victory privy mark.
Designed by artist Pandora Young, the reverse features a child’s eye view of the Liberation of the Netherlands in the spring of 1945. Standing in a crowd of cheering Dutch civilians, a young girl offers a tulip to the Canadian infantryman seated on the carrier, while others have climbed onboard to celebrate freedom. The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget and a Victory privy mark.
