2004 5-Cent Sterling Silver Coin - 60th anniversary of D-Day
It was June 6, 1944, when 14,000 Canadian soldiers landed on Juno Beach.

The fighting was fierce, but the Canadians managed to establish a Canadian beachhead before capturing St-Aubin, Courseulles and Berniers. One Canadian regiment succeeded in advancing 15 km (9.3 mi) inland - the only Allied unit to achieve its final objective. With victory on D-Day, the end of the war had begun.

Now, 60 years later, you can salute the courage of Canada's heroes with the 2004 5-Cent Sterling Silver Coin. Brimming with historical significance, its design is a replica of the tombac 5-cent coin that was issued to replace the traditional nickel during the war. It features Winston Churchill's famous 'V for Victory' with a torch. Along the rim of the coin, small dots and bars spell out, 'We Win When We Work Willingly' in international code.

Also included is an exclusive bronze medallion that features the same D-Day design, but with an effigy from that historic time on the obverse. It is the portrait of His Majesty King George VI, Canada's celebrated monarch who took a symbolic stand with Winston during 'our finest hour' by refusing to leave Buckingham Palace. This commemorative set also includes a CD with highlights of Canadian events leading up to the D-day invasion.
