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 holds immense historical significance, commemorating the pivotal moment in 1944 when over 150,000 Allied troops executed 'Operation Overlord,' landing on the Normandy coast. This daring mission marked a turning point in World War II, contributing significantly to the eventual defeat of Hitler's forces. The anniversary serves as a reminder of the bravery and sacrifice of those who participated, highlighting the enduring lessons of unity and determination in the face of adversity. 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. On the reverse is a superb depiction by leading artist and sculptor Sandra Deiana who has designed for The Royal Mint. Portrayed is a uniformed Allied soldier, armed with a rifle, stationed at one of the critical landing sites known as 'Utah,' 'Omaha,' 'Gold,' 'Juno,' and 'Sword.' On the coin’s obverse you'll find an official portrait of King Charles III, whose grandfather, George VI, reigned during World War 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!
