About The Coin



A life saved is a bond forged. This selectively coloured coin shows the Liberation of the Netherlands from the perspective of those who lived it. Beneath the repeating “V” (for Victory) in Morse code, its depiction of a gift of tulips serves as a tribute to the people of the Netherlands and to the First Canadian Army, which was cast in the role of liberator in 1945.

Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands with this touching coin. 

Special features:
  • THE TIES BETWEEN TWO NATIONS: This coin pays tribute to the Canadian Army and to the people of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It is a celebration of the special friendship between our two nations and the close ties forged in war.
  • CONTINUING FROM THE 2020 PROOF DOLLAR: This is the same soldier who appears as the middle silhouette on the 2020 Proof Dollar. Like a flashback, this design presents the Liberation of the Netherlands from the perspective of those who lived it. And the story continues on the 2020 Battlefront Series coin…
  • MORSE CODE: The dots and dashes at the top of the reverse design is a repeating “V” for Victory in Morse code.
  • A VICTORY PRIVY MARK: All coins in our 2020 75th Anniversary of V-E Day collection—including this one—feature a special privy mark that was inspired by the 1945 Victory nickel design. (An updated version of Canada’s historic 5-cent coin is available as part of the 2020 Proof Dollar Set.)
  • SELECTIVE COLOUR: Selective colour adds warmth to the exchange between the soldier and the civilian. It conveys hope, relief and new beginnings.
  • INSPIRED BY THE 2019 PROOF DOLLAR: In contrast to the 2019 Proof Dollar, this Canadian soldier looks over his shoulder and smiles at the welcome he has received. He does not know it yet but his homecoming is a not-so-distant possibility.
  • HISTORIC OBVERSE: Another collection-wide feature is the obverse design, which features the effigy of the reigning monarch in 1945.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN: NO GST/HST.

Design:
Designed by Joel Kimmel, the reverse uses selective colour to highlight a warm exchange between a soldier of the First Canadian Army and a Dutch civilian during the Liberation of the Netherlands (1945). The woman offers a gift of tulips to the Canadian infantry soldier, who is happy to see a friendly face. In the engraved background, a small crowd has gathered to cheer and wave at the Canadians as they travel along a canal street. The top features a repeating “V” for Victory in Morse code above the words “CANADA 10 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget and a Victory privy mark.

Our ninth Battlefront coin steps away from the battle to show a child’s eye view of the Liberation of the Netherlands (1945). The commemorative design shows Canada’s troops receiving a hero’s welcome at the end of the Second World War, when a lasting bond was formed between two nations. And like all coins in our 2020 V-E Day collection, the obverse includes a special Victory privy mark.

Special features:
  • NINTH COIN IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR BATTLEFRONT SERIES: Only one more coin left before the series is complete! This 1 oz. coin commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands (1944-1945). It is the story of how Canada helped a country regain its freedom.
  • EXCLUSIVE SERIES-WIDE PACKAGING: All our Second World War–Battlefront Series coins (including this one) are packaged in a clamshell case within a custom beauty box.

(A modern re-creation of Canada’s historic 5-cent coin is available as part of the 2020 Proof Dollar Set and the 2020 Special Edition Silver Dollar Proof Set.)
  • TWO NATIONS, ONE MOMENT: This coin pays tribute to the Canadian Army and to the people of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It is a celebration of freedom, of the relationship between our two countries and the lasting bond forged in war.
  • CONTINUING FROM THE 2020 PROOF DOLLAR: This is the same soldier who appears as the middle silhouette on the 2020 Proof Dollar and on the 2020 $10 Canadian Army coin. Our V-E Day collection is one big story that begins with V-E Day then looks back at the events leading up to the celebrations, before finally taking stock of its legacy.
  • A RARE CIVILIAN VIEW: Like the 2020 $10 Canadian Army coin, this design shows the Liberation of the Netherlands from the perspective of those who lived it. The child’s view places you in the crowd and conveys the admiration felt for Canadian troops, who were warmly welcomed as liberators.
  • INCLUDES HOLOGRAPHIC V-E DAY DECAL: A holographic V-E Day decal extends the celebration beyond the coin and onto the beauty box. This logo is the hallmark of our 2020 V-E Day collection.
  • A HISTORIC OBVERSE: Like all Canadian coins issued in 1945—and like all our Battlefront and 2020 V-E Day coins—this 99.99% pure silver coin features the effigy of King George VI (by T.H. Paget).
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
  • 1 OZ. PURE SILVER: Your coin is crafted from 99.99% pure silver!

Design:
Designed by artist Pandora Young, the reverse features a child’s eye view of the Liberation of the Netherlands in the spring of 1945. Standing in a crowd of cheering Dutch civilians, a young girl offers a tulip to the Canadian infantryman seated on the carrier, while others have climbed onboard to celebrate freedom. The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget and a Victory privy mark.
