Official Royal Mail limited edition £2 Coin Cover issued to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day
On 6th June 1944, the largest seaborne invasion in history took place when over 150,000 troops from Britain, Canada and the United States landed on a fifty-mile stretch of coastline in North Western France. The Normandy Landings marked the beginning of the end for Hitler’s Germany and World War II was officially over within twelve months.
In 2019 to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Royal Mail issued a stunning limited edition coin cover. At the centrepiece, it features a brand new, limited edition £2 brilliant uncirculated coin issued by the prestigious Royal Mint. The reverse features arrows pointing to the five different landing beaches of Normandy involved in the operation and includes the code names for each of the beaches.
To perfectly complement this coin, the cover features six brand new, official Royal Mail black and white commemorative stamps featuring striking images during D-Day. The stamps are cancelled on the very first day of issue – 6th June 2019 – the exact 75th anniversary date using a specially designed handstamp, which sets in stone the low worldwide edition limit of 10,000 covers.
The significance of the 75th anniversary of D-Day and the low worldwide edition limit are two key reasons why the cover is in very high demand. Harrington & Byrne has managed to secure a very small number of these attractive covers to offer today.
