Canada Post will be hosting four Royal Canadian Mint D-Day circulation coin exchanges in the Vancouver area during the month of June. These events will be free and open to anyone interested. You can come and exchange your change for the new D-Day circulation toonie ($2). 

In addition to the circulation coin, there will be several D-Day collector coins also available for sale. 

·A special wrap rolls of 25 two-dollar circulation coins featuring the same artwork found on the reverse of the coins.

·A ¼ oz. fine silver collector coin with a $3 denomination designed by Glen Loates.  It features the lone imprint of a soldier's boot on the sands of Juno Beach and is dated 1944-2019. 

·A six-coin set features the coloured and non-coloured of the D-Day $2 coin, as well as Canada's current 5-cent, 10-cent, 25-cent and $1 circulation coins. 

 Those coins will be available online at canadapost.ca, and at Post Offices across the country (either in stock or can be order in), for purchase.
