June 6, 1944 – forever known as D-Day – your coin transports you back in time with a unique first-person perspective that immerses you 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.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell box with a black beauty box.
