The Royal Canadian Mint honours bravery and sacrifice by dedicating its 2019 Proof Silver Dollar to the 75th Anniversary D-Day
  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  
   

OTTAWA, Ontario, Jan. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With each new year, the Royal Canadian Mint maintains the tradition of issuing an annual silver dollar to commemorate a story of national significance. This year, the Mint is proud to honour Canada's pivotal role in the successful Allied invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944 on the traditionally engraved 2019 Proof Silver Dollar – 75th Anniversary of D-Day. Designed by Simcoe-area artist Tony Bianco, the coin vividly depicts Canadians coming ashore under enemy fire. It is a poignant testament to the brave soldiers who risked all to help Canada and its allies win the Second World War. Multiple engravings of the letter "V" for victory in Morse Code further illustrate the magnitude of an incredible moment in military history.

Another powerful symbol of the sacrifices made by Canadians on D-Day can be found on the 2019 $100-Karat Gold Coin. Those who landed at Juno Beach, site of the Canadian offensive, are remembered by a simple boot print on a stretch of beach in Normandy, France, hallowed ground that will forever hold a special place in the hearts and minds of Canadians.   Both these memorable keepsakes are available as of today.

Innovating with shape is another Mint hallmark that returns on the new fine silver "three-panel" coin set – Wings of Hope. Designed by artist David Caesar, two rectangular wafers flank a maple leaf-shaped centrepiece to produce a panoramic scene of a majestic Peregrine falcon with its wings outstretched over two familiar habitats.  Natural cliffs appear to the left, while urban skyscrapers where many of these once-endangered birds nest, are shown to the right.  

Other products, including several mainstays, launching in January include:
