Commemorate the historic 80th anniversary of D-Day with this limited-edition £5 coin cover

The 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings in 2024 marks a pivotal moment in World War II history, commemorating the largest seaborne invasion ever undertaken. This significant milestone honours the bravery and sacrifice of the Allied forces who stormed the beaches of Normandy on June 6, 1944, a decisive operation that led to the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi occupation. The anniversary serves as a solemn reminder of the cost of freedom and the enduring spirit of international cooperation and unity. To mark this historic 80th anniversary, a limited-edition coin cover has been released.

At the heart of the cover is a newly minted 2024 D-Day coin accented in pure silver and boasting an impeccable proof-like finish. Designed by renowned artist Sandra Deiana, known for her work with The Royal Mint, the reverse of the coin features a poignant scene on one of Normandy's landing beaches. It depicts a group of uniformed soldiers navigating through the English Channel's turbulent waters, under the watchful guard of naval vessels and the support from the skies with paratroopers and Allied air forces. On the coin's obverse is an official portrait of Charles III, whose grandfather, George VI, was reigning during the war and played a crucial role in uplifting the morale of the British people. This portrait, facing left and approved by the King himself, is the work of engraver Jody Clark, celebrated for crafting the UK’s last coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.

Adding to the cover’s appeal is the inclusion of a 1/2d stamp from the reign of King George VI, along with a 1st class stamp from the reign of King Charles III. The latter stamp has been postmarked at the outset of the 80th anniversary year, specifically on 1st January 2024, using a specially designed handstamp, confirming the exclusive edition limit of just 2,024 covers.

The substantial collector interest in military commemoratives, combined with the exclusive worldwide edition limit, presents two compelling reasons why this limited-edition coin cover is poised to sell-out quickly. Act without delay to secure yours!
