75th Anniversary of V-E Day - Proof Fine Silver Dollar (2020)
Introducing the 2020 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe (V-E) Day collection.
The Royal Canadian Mint's 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. It begins on the 2020 Proof Dollar, where the design strikes a balance between celebration and remembrance and sets the tone for coins to come. Our own past is present, with the 1945 Victory nickel serving as the inspiration for design elements that are the hallmarks of this collection—from the Victory privy mark to the holographic decal on each beauty box. This is The Royal Canadian Mint's way of paying tribute to all who contributed to the fight for freedom, wherever Canada was needed.
- THIS FLAGSHIP PRODUCT SETS THE TONE: It sets the tone for a yearlong commemoration of a major anniversary in 2020: the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe.
- THE END IS THE BEGINNING: Your proof dollar is the starting point for a historical journey that spans several coins in 2020. It is the story of Canada leading up to V-E Day, of a nation’s contributions and its reaction to the end of the Second World War in Europe.
- WE CELEBRATE THE END OF THE WAR IN EUROPE: We remember the fallen. Every branch of the Canadian Armed Forces is represented in the three silhouettes on this coin.
- NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE: A new engraving technique made it possible to fade out the crowd at the top without impacting the silhouettes in the bottom portion.
- A VICTORY PRIVY MARK: Every coin in our 2020 V-E Day collection—including your Proof Dollar—features a special privy mark that was inspired by the 1945 Victory nickel. An updated version ofthe historic 5-cent coin is available as part of the 2020 Proof Dollar Set , which includes a selectively gold-plated version of this proof dollar.
- ANOTHER NOD TO OUR HISTORY: Canada’s Victory nickel also inspired the “V” seen on this coin’s reverse.
- INCLUDES HOLOGRAPHIC V-E DAY DECAL: A holographic V-E Day decal extends the celebration beyond the coin and onto the beauty box. This logo is the hallmark of the 2020 V-E Day collection.
- HISTORIC OBVERSE: Another collection-wide feature is the obverse design, which features the effigy of the reigning monarch in 1945.
- INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
- LIMITED MINTAGE: Only 25,000 coins are available worldwide.
- 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN: Your coin has been expertly crafted in 99.99% pure silver with a proof finish that accentuates every detail to stunning effect.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
