Stunning limited edition Silver Proof 50p 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, a stunning limited edition coin cover has been issued. At the centrepiece, it features a brand new, limited edition 50p coloured coin struck to the highest proof finish in 925/1000 sterling silver. The reverse features the coastline of Normandy with the five beaches involved in the invasion and the three participating nations flags.
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 just 499 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.
