Canada 2 dollars 2014 - Wait for me, Daddy

New bimetallic commemorative:

75th anniversary of World War II: Wait for me, Daddy

It is perhaps the most famous photograph taken in Canada during the Second World War: a five-year-old boy breaks away from his mother's grasp to run after his father as he marches off to war. Taken in New Westminster, B.C. in the fall of 1940, "Wait for me, Daddy" continues to resonate as a snapshot of the war's impact on Canadians and the personal sacrifices they made.
