Description of obverse and reverse
On the obverse of the coin are the flags of the allied nations of the Second World War. These flags bear the heraldic codes for colours. The inscription "75 ans Victoire - Victory" appears on the right and refers to the anniversary of the Allied victory over Nazi Germany. The coin is in the shape of a trapeze bearing a V made up of flags symbolizing Victory, an innovation for Monnaie de Paris. 

The reverse of the coin represents doves taking flight. These doves are synonymous with peace. The bird in the foreground has its wings spread out in a V-shape echoing the Allied victory over Nazi Germany. The face value, the yeardate and the word "RF" are also visible on this reverse.
A brief annotation
On May 8th, 1945, the capitulation of the German army was made official. It was thus the end of the Second World War, and the end of more than five years of deadly battles.
