Honour the 'Miracle of Dunkirk' with the brand new SILVER £5 Coin Cover, issued to mark the 80th Anniversary of Dunkirk.
Code-named Operation Dynamo, 338,226 Allied soldiers were evacuated from the beaches and harbour at Dunkirk, France in over 800 hastily assembled vessels between 26 May and 4 June 1940.
Prime Minister Winston Churchill soon after referred to the outcome as a “miracle of deliverance”. And, though early in the conflict, Operation Dynamo’s success is considered one of the great turning points of the war.
BRAND NEW Solid Silver £5 Coin
Fully approved by Her Majesty The Queen, this coin has been struck from solid Sterling Silver to a flawless proof finish. The reverse design features a British Soldier wading through waist-deep seawater towards the ‘Little Ships’ anchored just off shore, and Churchill’s immortal words ‘We Shall Never Surrender’ accompanying the engraving.
Official Royal Mail stamps
Paired alongside your coin is the official Royal Mail Dunkirk Miniature Sheet. Issued a decade ago, they are the only UK stamps EVER issued to mark the evacuation, and as such have firmly established themselves as a collector's favourite.
Your cover will also be officially postmarked by Royal Mail with a special cancellation on the exact 80th anniversary of the first day of Operation Dynamo – 26 May 2020.
A strict worldwide edition limit – just 250 available
The Dunkirk 80th Anniversary £5 Silver Coin Cover is limited to JUST 250 for worldwide distribution. From a collector’s point of view, the decision is obvious. You’ll struggle to find a smaller edition presentation of the NEW Silver £5 coin anywhere else, and none paired with Royal Mail’s sought-after stamps.
When you order, your cover will come presented in a Deluxe Presentation Folder alongside its accompanying Certificate of Authenticity. It will also be hand-numbered in silver ink, confirming its position within the strict edition limit.
