2020 CANADA 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF V-E DAY FINE SILVER PROOF SET

$199.95

The Royal Canadian Mint’s 2020 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe (V-E) Day collection reflects the multi-part story of Canada in 1945—a story of wartime contributions and a peacetime legacy. Every coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s 2020 V-E Day collection—including the gold-plated version of the 2020 Proof Dollar found in this set—features a special Victory privy mark.

Victory in Europe Day celebrates the formal acceptance of Germany’s surrender by the Allies on Tuesday, May 8, 1945, bringing the Second World War in Europe to a close. Countries such a Russia, Belarus, and Israel observe VE Day (known as Victory Over Fascism Day, Liberation Day, or Victory Day in some countries) on May 9th, as it was already May 9 in those countries when the surrender was accepted.
