Our 2020 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe (V-E) Day collection is the multi-part story of Canada in 1945—a story of wartime contributions and a peacetime legacy. Every coin in our 2020 V-E Day collection—including this set’s gold-plated version of the 2020 Proof Dollar—features a special Victory privy mark.
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.
- An exclusive version of the Proof Dollar: The star of this seven-piece set is a selectively gold-plated version of the 2020 Proof Dollar, and it is only available as part of this set.
- Another set exclusive: The 5-cent coin in this set is a rare re-creation of the 1945 Victory nickel.
- New gold plating technique allows the gold to penetrate much smaller areas and reveal far more details than ever before
