Canada: 2020 5 Cents The Canadian Home Front: The Victory Nickel Bronze Coin

Design: Your coin re-creates the celebrated Victory design by Thomas Shingles that appeared on Canada’s five-cent coins between 1943 and 1945. A flaming torch represents the sacrifices made by Canadians at home and on the battlefields during the Second World War. Behind it, a big “V” has dual meaning: it alludes to Sir Winston Churchill’s famous “V for Victory” sign, and is also the Roman numeral that represents the denomination (5). On either side of the V are maple leaves, while traditional denticles are replaced by a bilingual version of the original message, “WE WIN WHEN WE WORK WILLINGLY  LA BONNE VOLONTÉ EST GAGE DE VICTOIRE”, in Morse code. The obverse features the historical effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget.
