For almost 30 years, Colonial Acres has been proud to offer collectors and investors the finest in Canadian proof coin sets. To honour the 75th anniversary of VE-Day, we are pleased to present a truly exceptional coin set as a special reminder of the Royal Canadian Navy’s role in fighting for freedom. This beautiful series is the perfect addition for every collector, as it showcases the heritage of this country’s military through exceptional detail and quality.
The Proud Heritage of the Royal Canadian Navy
During the Second World War, the RCN demonstrated valour and strength as it played a significant role in restoring peace to the nations of the world. It experienced immense growth during this time in history, expanding to over 95,000 service persons and 434 vessels by the end of the war, making it one of the largest navies on earth. It was also during this time that women first served in the RCN, helping to change the course of history for women across the globe.
The Royal Canadian Navy served alongside the Allies by fighting in the Battle of the Atlantic, offering safe escort for vital supply and transport vessels, and even aiding in the sinking of over 30 U-boats. In the end, around 2,000 brave men and women of the RCN gave their lives for the cause. During 2020, we celebrate that momentous occasion 75 years ago, when the Royal Canadian Navy helped bring an end to World War II. We are honoured to memorialize this significant moment in world history with this special edition silver dollar proof coin set.
A Unique Design
To commemorate the actions and bravery of those who served, the Royal Canadian Mint has crafted a truly unique and beautiful design for this special coin set. As a tribute to the country and its heroic sailors, this coin features a signature look that boasts the bright red, blue and white hues of the old-style Canadian flag as it waves proudly in the background. A closer look reveals that the flag is shaped as a memorial ribbon to remember those who gave their all.
In front is a set of three sailors, merry yet ever-watchful over the waters that continue to roll beyond just out of view. They are perched on the bow of one of the Navy’s surface vessels, on which is emblazoned the year 1945: when peace and freedom prevailed. Beneath is marked the year 2020 to honour the 75th anniversary of the illustrious occasion. This special set also features a replica of the Victory 5-cent coin, which was released in 1945 to celebrate the end of the war.
When you purchase Canadian proof coin sets from Colonial Acres, you can trust that you’ll receive only the finest quality for a flawless finish. This proof dollar is crafted from 99.99% pure silver and is set in a beautiful book-style casing for a stunning display piece. This truly unique design has an amazing story to tell and also comes with a serialized certificate.
