- On the proof dollar, the reverse image features a first-person view of the Canadian landings at Juno Beach on June 6, 1944 (D-Day), while dots and dashes represent the letter V (for “Victory”) in Morse code.
- While the 2019 Proof Dollar focuses on the young soldier, this selectively coloured version places the focus on a gesture that is also part of the story. It is a poignant reminder of the cost of war and the sacrifices made.
**Juno Beach Centre Association’s D-Day anniversary logo : The reverse image shares the same inspiration as the Juno Beach Centre Association’s D-Day anniversary logo; it re-creates a moment caught on film when the North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment landed on Nan Red Beach (La Rive Plage).
