The end of World War II was a series of capitulations. The German forces in Italy surrendered on the May 2nd, 1945. The following day a high-ranking German delegation, including a senior admiral and a senior general, appeared at the headquarters of Field Marshal Sir Bernard Montgomery, located near Lubeck, to surrender the German forces in Northern Germany, Denmark, and the Netherlands. The final document of unconditional surrender was signed on May 7th, 1945, in a schoolhouse in Reims, France, at 2:41 a.m. local time. German General Alfred Johl signed the surrender of all the German forces and General Dwight Eisenhower accepted the surrender on behalf of the Allies, ending the war in Europe. The surrender was official at 11:01 p.m. the next day, May 8th, 1945, which has since become known as Victory in Europe (or V-E) Day.
This superb coin illustrates the schoolhouse in Reims where the final surrender document was signed and accepted. Portraits of Eisenhower and Montgomery are shown above the schoolhouse and the date of 7th May is shown on the wall of the schoolhouse.
The wording ‘60th Anniversary of V-E Day 1945’ is in the surround and the value is shown at the base. Approved by Buckingham Palace the obverse of each coin carries a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD.
The coins are available in Unc. Cupro Nickel, Proof Sterling Silver and 1/5 oz Fine 999.9 Gold, with each of the precious metal versions being struck four times to achieve the stunning Pobjoy proof finish.
