Canadian forces played an important role on Operation Overlord D-Day and throughout the Battle of Normandy. The coin design inspired by a real-life moment footage taken during the landings at Juno Beach on June 6 1944. The young solder is later identified as Private Baker from A Company of New Brunswick’s North Shore Regiment.
The 2019 D-Day Proof Silver Dollar designed by Tony Bianco, featuring a young infantry soldier with a strained expression on his face after surveying what lies ahead at his first real combat experience at the shores of Juno Beach.
