It is perhaps the most famous photograph taken in Canada during the Second World War: a five-year-old boy breaks away from his mother's grasp to run after his father as he marches off to war. Taken in New Westminster, B.C. in the fall of 1940, "Wait for Me, Daddy" continues to resonate as a snapshot of the war's impact on Canadians and the personal sacrifices they made.

Design:
Your coin's design is a reproduction of the iconic photograph known as "Wait for Me, Daddy," which was taken on October 1, 1940, in New Westminster, B.C. by photographer Claude Dettloff. The men of the B.C. Regiment, the Duke of Connaught's Own Rifles, form an impressive line as they march down the street. But the focus of the image is on the real and touching scene of one family that is saying goodbye. In the centre of the image field, a pale-haired young boy has broken free of his mother's grasp (at left) to reach out to his uniformed father (at right), who is marching off to war. The father has turned to smile at his son; shifting his rifle to the other hand, he reaches out to his son one last time before they are to be separated by war.

I purchased this product for myself and then ordered another for my sister. Combined with the "Wait for me daddy" stamps that Canada Post issued around the same time it made a great gift. She loved it!!

Great Theme for this Coin

The "Wait for Me, Daddy Coin Pack" was a great addition to my coin collection. I liked the theme of the coin because it's in remembrance of a unique event in history. Overall, a good customer experience, except that it took too long to arrive (probably because it was a small shipment). The coin package could have been better quality.

The theme is the best I have seen in a while. At face, you cannot beat the value. Always like the circulating coinage as opposed to the nclt.
