Special-themed $2 coin design:

Your riveting coin design by Canadian artist Alan Daniel is charged with tense anticipation as Canadian soldiers peer from their landing craft en route to Juno Beach. This compelling landing craft perspective extends beyond the inner core to the outer ring where naval and air forces support the Allied landings. D-DAY/LE JOUR J is above the soldiers' helmets. At the bottom, the words REMEMBER/SOUVENIR flank 2019.

Did you know…
  • "D-Day" is military shorthand to ensure the dates for field missions remain secret. The letter "H" was also used for "hour", e.g. D-2 would mean two days before D-Day, while H+3 would indicate 3 hours after H-Hour. It is unclear how the invasion of June 6, 1944 became known as "D-Day." Its official name was "Operation Neptune."
  • Innovative tanks were developed to ensure victory on D-Day and throughout the Normandy Campaign. The Sherman DD could swim; the Sherman Crab had chain mail that would spin to detonate mines and shred barbed wire; the Churchill Bobbin lay matting on sand; and the Churchill Fascine filled enemy trenches with brushwood.
  • Supplying the troops after D-Day and throughout the Normandy Campaign was a massive undertaking. Portable docking facilities were built to ensure ships could deliver food, medical supplies, weapons and troops to the European continent. A long underwater pipeline called "Pluto" (Pipe Lines Under The Ocean) was also built to carry fuel from England to Normandy.

D-Day in Numbers:
  • 80 kilometres of heavily defended Normandy coast was the target invasion zone on D-Day
  • 5 German-occupied beaches code-named Sword, Gold (assigned to the British forces), Juno (Canadians), Omaha and Utah (Americans) were captured
  • 450+ Canadians parachuted inland before dawn on June 6th to flank the landings 
  • 14,000 Canadian troops came ashore as part of the 150,000 Allied assault force
  • 10,000 sailors and 110 ships from the Royal Canadian Navy (including destroyers, corvettes, minesweepers, landing ships and landing craft) were among the 7,000 Allied vessels that supported the landings
  • 55 Royal Canadian Air Force squadrons earned the Battle Honour Normandy 1944 as part of an Allied Air offensive that included 4,000 bombers plus some 3,700 fighters and fighter-bombers that attacked prior to D-Day, during the landings, and throughout the campaign
  • 359 Canadians lost their lives on D-Day, with the total number of Canadian fatalities rising to more than 5,000 by the end of the campaign.

Quality Issues

1

I love Circulation coins. Purchased the 2 roll set right away and received them quickly. No-colour roll was fine, but the colour roll came with several damaged coins (scratches and other imperfections). I contacted the mint and they said "those are circulation rolls - no exchange!". true, but those are supposed to be Uncirculated, and a 50%+ ratio of defective coins is certainly not on par with Mint's track record on quality.

Same side problem not resoloved on special wrap rolls!

The price is a little high but, my BIG issue is the Mint still has not resolved the same coin side problem on special wrap rolls. Received my 2 roll special wrap set and both rolls had the same side showing at both ends. I thought the Mint had resolved this long standing issue? Will be exchanging or if they can't provide a roll with different sides showing at the ends, they will be returned.

Nice design coin but a mark up $29.95 a roll 62.5 % PROFIT

Nice design coin but a mark up of $29.95 a roll or 62.5 % PROFIT for the mint . They need to control the cost of there coins . New collectors cannot afford these huge mark ups . Plus the value will take many years to get your money back if you try to sell them in next 10 or 15 years . Been collecting for over 35 years but slowly cutting back cause there way over pricing the coins . In My life time i will probably never break even trying to sell them . Well have too leave them to my kids or even grand kids so they maybe get the cost i payed for them back out of them . Very few of there coins now a day are a good an investment. Its a money losing hobby now .

Do you apply taxes on sold items? As I know the Canadian Mint does not add taxes for the coins, right?

Vitaly

Hello and thank you for asking. The taxes are charged on any items that are not pure gold or pure silver. Some provinces have to still pay the PST on pure silver and pure gold. We collect the taxes as instructed by the Federal and Provincial governments.

Chantal

How can there be only 5,000 rolls of each type when the mint is also selling the colored rolls with a mintage listed of 5,000 rolls?

alant

Hello and thank you for asking. We are minting 5,000 rolls of the colored coins in total.

Chantal

the packs of 10 coins have always been popular with collectors. Will this coin come packed as 10 coins in an envelope? Seldom am i seeing any new issue coins where i live and only need a few.

just need a few

Hello and thank you for asking. We are not releasing the packs of 5 circulation coins. The decision was made by the Federal Government and the Mint.

Chantal

How many non coloured coins are being minted and do you have to buy a roll of coloured coins also to get the non coloured coins in other words do you have to buy the two rolls of coins togethor

Bug

Hello and thank for inquiring. We offer two rolls as a set, one roll of the coloured coins and the other roll as the non-coloured coins.

Chantal

Why did you not package a mixture of both plain & coloured D-Day coins in ONE roll as you did for other coins? Many of us only want a few of each and now have to spend $160.00 for the 2 rolls, for expensive, extra coins we don't want? Do I understand that these will not be in general circulation?

granny20

Hello and thank you for asking. You will receive one roll of coloured coins and one roll of non-coloured coins. They will be put in general circulation.

Chantal

Will either or both of the two D-Day 2 Dollar Coins, coloured and / or non-coloured, be available for purchase individually (single coins only) from the mint? Will they be available in general circulation, or from banks or credit unions? Please give a clear direct answer that is not ambiguous. Thank you

Chuck

Hello Chuck and thank you for asking. The D-Day $2 coins will not be available to purchase individually from the Mint. It will be found in circulation. Circulation coins go into circulation through financial institutions. You may wish to request from your bank to order some of these coins for you through their normal channels. While banks are not obliged to do so, many agree to order coins for customers as a customer service gesture.
