The 75th Anniversary of D-Day Churchill Piedfort coin

2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the Normandy Landings, D-Day. One of the most ambitious military assaults in human history. To commemorate one of the leading British figures from that day a brand new double thickness Piedfort coin has been issued.

A wartime legend and pivotal to the success of the Normandy Landings this issue celebrates Sir Winston Churchill, one of Britain’s most respected political and military heroes.

The design features a specially commissioned depiction of Sir Winston Churchill by renowned artist, David Young. Each coin comes complete with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Due to the importance of this anniversary, the Mint has struck this coin to a Piedfort specification. Double the thickness, Piedfort coins are typically issued with around half the edition of the standard coin. As a result they have a strong sell out record, ensuring their long-term collectability.

Double Thickness

Being double thickness, this coin weighs 50 grams – almost twice as much as the standard specification, it's also been expertly plated in 24 Carat Gold to a pristine Proof finish.

Proof is the highest grade of finish found on collectable coins. They are produced using a specially prepared die which strikes the coin several times to create a high quality frosted and mirrored finish and enhanced definition.

Remember this is a double-thickness “Piedfort” Proof coin that has been plated in 24 Carat gold, you'll need to act fast.
