A footstep that led to a foothold. The boot print belongs to the young soldier featured on the 2019 Proof Dollar. Both coins are part of a year-long journey of remembrance; each one is a different chapter in the story of Canada in the Normandy Campaign.

On D-Day, Canada's 14,000 soldiers were part of the largest seaborne invasion in history which included an Allied assault force 150,000 strong. Delayed by weather and a strong current, the first assault wave landed at 7:49 a.m. Infantry and armored units continued to pour onto the increasingly congested beach as the enemy held its position. By 10 a.m., several beach exits were cleared and reserve battalions began moving in; and by 12 p.m., all units of the 3rd Canadian Division had come ashore. Bullets rained down on the infantry as they waded through the water, but more dangers awaited them on land. Obstacles, hidden mines and machine gun fire made for a harrowing race across 200 meters of open beach. And behind the seawall were concrete bunkers, machine gun nests, anti-tank guns and pillboxes. Sherman DD tanks joined the assault troops in overrunning defensive strong points. Armed with small arms and grenades, some troops even engaged in hand-to-hand combat in their attempt to clear the beach. Casualties were highest in the first wave of soldiers that broke through the German defenses. By day's end, 340 Canadians had made the ultimate sacrifice, with another 574 wounded—and it was just the start of their grueling campaign through Normandy.
