Own the Official D-Day Anniversary coin flown in an aircraft from D-Day - hand-signed by the pilot…

Just 500 worldwide!

2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings – perhaps the most important operation in turning the tide of WWII. To mark this historic occasion, an Official D-Day 75th Anniversary £5 coin has been issued, paying tribute to the enormity of the mission and the pioneering engineering behind the D-Day mission vehicles.

Today, you have the unique chance to become one of JUST 500 lucky collectors to own one of these brand-new D-Day 75th Anniversary £5 coins flown in an original D-Day aircraft - a WWII C47 Dakota (or Gooney Bird) that actually flew during D-Day and hand-signed by the pilot himself!

Flown on board veteran C47 Dakota Drag ‘Em Oot

On 9th August, we took an extremely limited number of these superb £5 coins to be flown in veteran C47 Dakota, Drag ‘Em Oot, at North Weald Airfield by pilot Chris Goezinne.

Bearing authentic bullet holes from D-Day, Arnhem and other WWII battle exploits, the incredible skytrain, Drag ‘Em Oot, is a piece of history in its rawest form and one of just a handful which remain airworthy today.

Official 2019 £5 coin release

Featuring three of the most significant vehicles in the D-Day offensive, the coin is designed to celebrate the engineering feat achieved by the Allied forces; including:

  • Cromwell Mk IV Tank
  • Airspeed Horsa Glider
  • Royal Navy Landing Craft

Representing air, land and sea, the full colour technical design of each vehicle brings to life the scale of the mission with impeccable detail.

The coin has been issued by Guernsey and approved by Her Majesty the Queen and struck to a superior, Brilliant Uncirculated finish, free from the blemishes of circulating coins.

Tiny edition limit – hand-signed by the Pilot!

JUST 500 of these remarkable coins have been flown and hand-signed by Pilot Chris himself. Given the enormous demand for collectable militaria and the fact that our previous flown £5 coin SOLD OUT in just a couple of days, this won’t be nearly enough to meet demand.

Your coin is encapsulated within tamper-proof casing to preserve its flawless condition and the clarity of the hand-written signature for generations to come.

Complete with a premium presentation case and a numbered certificate of authenticity, your flown D-Day £5 is the most unique D-Day 75 commemoratives to make your collection stand out from the crowd.

It won’t be around for long, don’t miss out! –Secure yours today by click ‘add to cart’ now!
