Mintage is limited to just 15,000. About the Proof Dollar Design. A selectively gold-plated V for Victory dominates the reverse design by artist Pandora Young. The crowd represents jubilation on the home front on May 8, 1945, a day when Canadians poured into streets and public places to celebrate Victory in Europe (V-E) Day.
The spontaneous celebration gradually fades behind the V to become a scene of remembrance, with three silhouettes representing the different branches (navy, army and air force) of the Canadian and British Armed Forces in which Canadians and Newfoundlanders served. The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T.
Paget and a Victory privy mark.
