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.
