D-Day was the largest seaborne invasion in history. It took place on 6th June 1944 and began the liberation of German-occupied France during WWII, laying the foundations of the Allied victory.
To commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, The United Kingdom has issued a brand new £2 coin.
Designed by renowned Royal Mint engraver, Stephen Taylor, the reverse features arrows each pointing across the English Channel to Normandy.
Each arrow also has one of the code names used each of the beaches where Allied troops landed on D-Day – Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword.
And this is your chance to own this brand new £2 coin presented in a unique collector card, which has been specially commissioned and expertly illustrated by Andy Walker.
