One of the greatest operations of the Second World War was Operation Overlord. Taking place on 6th June 1944, the Allied invasion of German-occupied Europe dealt a blow to the Nazis and has gone down in history as one of the most brilliant military maneuvers ever executed. To commemorate D-Day, as this day is now known, the Isle of Man Government has approved the release of this stunning new Proof Sterling Silver crown by Pobjoy Mint.

The design on this incredible collector’s coin depicts Allied Troops storming a bunker on D-Day with signs naming the five landing beaches, and a large ‘D’ representing D-Day. The design also incorporates several poppies, recognized world-wide as the symbol for those who gave their lives for their country. Available in both Proof Sterling Silver and Uncirculated Cupro Nickel, all coins have been produced to the highest quality and the precious metal coins have been struck four times to produce the famous Pobjoy Proof finish. As an Act of Remembrance for the 70th Anniversary, the coin is also available in a special edition with the poppies colored red.

The Pobjoy Mint has been a leader in innovative coin design and craftsmanship for more than 50 years. Derek Pobjoy started the private mint in 1965, coming from a background in jewelry. The first coins minted were commemorative Sterling Silver and Gold coins in memory of former Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, which launched the mint into becoming a huge success.

The idea that countries, big or small, can and should have their own coinage is what pushed the Pobjoy Mint forward. Pobjoy approached the Isle of Man government to begin a program of collector coins with corresponding values and specifications as British coins. In 1972, the Pobjoy Mint created the first practical set of coins for the Isle of Man including a 1/2 penny and up to 50 pence coins. These coins included historical and cultural elements, such as the Isle of Man’s distinctive three-legged “Triskele” insignia.

Since then, the Pobjoy Mint has issued an array of innovative and artistic coins sought after by some of the choosiest collectors. One particular contribution to numismatics and coin production was the development of the world’s first satisfactory man-made Precious Metal, called Virenium, which has been used in high denomination coinage since 1978. This was hailed worldwide as the first significant breakthrough in coinage from the last century.

The Pobjoy Mint provides circulation and collector coinage for 12 countries and territories, and that number is ever increasing. Pobjoy Mint has been consistently recognized within the numismatic industry for their innovations, including 45 “firsts” such as the first Silver one kilo coin, the first coin in the shape of the Eiffel Tower, the first titanium coin and the world’s highest relief coin. The Pobjoy Mint has demonstrated their ability to push the limits of the coin industry to surprising achievements and new heights.
