Canada's involvement in the D-Day landings is remembered in new D-Day coins from Royal Canadian Mint.
On 6 June 1944, almost 14,000 Canadian troops landed at Juno beach in Normandy, playing a vital role in the top-secret D-Day landings.
The troops fought to secure a beachhead on an eight-kilometre long stretch of Normandy coast and succeeded in pushing further forward than any of the Allies, despite the loss of many men.
