• 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 the Royal Canadian Mint’s 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.
