The first step into battle takes incredible courage.

On June 6, 1944, 14,000 Canadians stepped forward and fought to secure a beachhead on an 8-km stretch of Normandy coast. Many fell before reaching the shore; still, the brave Canadians pushed on, advancing farther than any of the Allies and clearing the way for the invading forces that followed.

This powerful coin design honours the Canadian soldiers who landed on Juno Beach and helped secure an Allied foothold in Western Europe. Although their boot prints in the sand have long washed away, their imprint on history will endure forever.

The soldiers who landed in France on June 6, 1944, were indelibly marked by that event. But as they crossed the beach and began the liberation campaign in Northwest Europe, they left their own everlasting mark, symbolised here by the imprint of the soldier's boot.
