Elizabeth II (2003 to present)
Canadian artist Susanna Blunt creates the most recent effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by the inscription ELIZABETH II D G REGINA. A reminder to the effigy of Her Majesty’s father (1937-1952) that of George VI, who also chose to be represented without a crown.
The expression D-Day, already used by the military during the preparation of the offensives at the end of the First World War, currently designates Tuesday The first day of the Normandy landings, marking the beginning of the Battle of Normandy in World War II.
This is the basic finish found on most standard circulation coins in Canada.
