2024 United Kingdom 80th Anniversary of D-Day 50p Silver Proof Coin

  Description    Specifications      Free Delivery   


Marking the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings in June 1944 – the official United Kingdom limited edition Silver Proof 50p Coin

2024 marks the 80th Anniversary of the Normandy Landings – D-Day. A pivotal point of World War II, the unprecedented military operation took place on 6th June 1944 and involved over 150,000 troops from Canada, Great Britain and the United States. The creation of a second front in Western Europe would act as a significant catalyst to victory over Nazi Germany within 12 months.

This hugely important anniversary has rightly been recognised by the issue of a range of new United Kingdom Silver Proof Coins by the Royal Mint. All approved by Buckingham Palace for release, the new official coins have been designed by acclaimed artist David Lawrence, who has been responsible for many previous UK coin issues and has created a reverse that depicts Allied soldiers risking their lives to wade ashore.

One of the key releases from the Royal Mint for the 80th Anniversary of D-Day has been the United Kingdom Silver Proof 50p Coin. Struck in 925/1000 Sterling Silver to the finest Proof finish, this official coin has been issued with a mintage of just 5,000 worldwide and is expected to sell-out shortly. Despite this overwhelming demand, Harrington & Byrne was successful in securing a small allocation.

The Solid Silver Coin has been developed with the assistance of the Imperial War Museums and comes housed in an official Royal Mint Presentation Case with Certificate of Authenticity. With limited numbers available of this United Kingdom Silver Coin, a swift response is highly recommended.
