To commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, Pobjoy Mint is proud to release this special 2019 Cupro Nickel Diamond Finished 50p coin on behalf of the Government of Gibraltar.
The design shows the coastline of Normandy with the five beaches involved in the invasion indicated on the land. The three national flags of the Allied Forces (United States of America, United Kingdom and Canada) are shown. Above this, the wording ‘1944-2019 D-DAY’ is shown below the outline of a World War II ship indicating the anniversary.
On this day some 156,000 American, British and Canadian troops landed on fives beaches along a 50 mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning. The amphibious landings were preceded by extensive aerial and naval bombardment and an airborne assault with the landing of 24,000 US, British and Canadian airborne troops shortly after midnight. Allied infantry and armoured divisions began landing on the coast of France at 0630 hours.
Pobjoy Mint Couped Effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with the inscription completed in Latin reading 'ELIZABETH II BY THE GRACE OF GOD, QUEEN OF GIBRALTAR". The coin inscription includes the year date.
*Specific die marks will be allocated randomly with your purchase and therefore a specific letter set is not guaranteed.*
During World War II, the Battle of Normandy resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany's control. Code named Operation Overlord, the battle began on 6th June 1944, also known as D-Day.
