Description
 
In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of D-Day, this finely detailed coin offers a unique first-person perspective of the peril faced by Canadian soldiers during their landing at Juno Beach. The detailed design serves as a heartfelt tribute to the Canadian veterans of the Second World War, and their enduring legacy of service and sacrifice in Normandy and beyond.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Maskull Lasserre transports the viewer back in time to the morning of June 6, 1944 - forever known as D-Day - with a unique first-person perspective that immerses the viewer in the midst of the action. Canadian infantry soldiers are seen in full battle gear as they disembark from a Landing Craft Assault (LCA) vehicle and make their way to what's become known as Juno Beach. In the foreground, one soldier looks on while another at left looks back at the viewer, who is about to follow the others into the low Atlantic tide. The precariously angled horizon in the background recreates the rough sea conditions, as the transport vehicle and its occupants are tossed about by tall waves just off the shores of Normandy.
