Two V-E Day exclusives in one set: This seven-piece set is your only opportunity to own a selectively gold-plated version of the 2020 V-E Day Proof Dollar. From the big “V” for Victory on the reverse to the privy mark on the obverse, the enhanced proof dollar includes several features that were inspired by the 1945 Victory nickel. That same design also replaces the traditional beaver image on the 5-cent coin—another set exclusive that immerses you in a historic moment.

Design:

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.

Commemorate the 75th anniversary of V-E Day with the 2020 pure silver proof set.

“On the proof dollar, there are so many fine details in the crowd—faces, expressions, clothing—and all of it had to be sculpted with care. The large “V" letter for Victory was modelled in a bold, crisp manner and gold plated to make it stand out. The “CANADA” text was an added challenge: the letters needed to be prominent without being too high, so we used a modelling trick to have some letters above the V and others sunk into it.”
Alex Tirabasso: Engraver
