Own the Limited Edition D-Day Historic Coin Set, paying tribute to iconic D-Day leaders - just 995 worldwide...

2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings, the amphibious assault which proved pivotal in turning the tide of WWII. To commemorate the feat of the operation, we have curated an Exclusive D-Day Historic Coin Set in celebration of two key figures central to the success of Operation Overlord – Churchill and Eisenhower.

Today, you have the opportunity own this D-Day Historic Coin Set in a limited edition capsule presentation…

The crown that changed everything

Issued in 1965 to celebrate the life of Sir Winston Churchill, Britain’s greatest ever Prime Minister, best known for steering his country to victory in World War Two, the Churchill Crown was the first British coin to feature anyone outside of the Royal Family.

For that reason, this coin is largely considered to be the coin that changed the face of British coinage indefinitely, making it one of the most famous coins from the last century and a must-have coin for any numismatic collector!

Collector gold-dust

The second coin in the set is the 1971 Eisenhower Dollar, issued following the death of the United States’ 34th President and leading figure in the Normandy offensive as Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, Dwight Eisenhower. A number were struck in copper-nickel for circulation, but this is the special collector version struck from 40% Silver. 

Now, sourcing US coins from outside America is incredibly difficult and US coin collecting is one of the most competitive markets globally. What’s more, this coin is a first-year-of-issue, original Dollar and for these reasons, incredibly collectable.

Exclusive Limited Edition Presentation – JUST 995

The coins sit within exclusive artwork featuring some of the most memorable words from Churchill and Eisenhower’s most iconic speeches. The coins come encapsulated to preserve their condition and presented within a deluxe presentation case, complete with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, confirming your set’s place within the strict edition limit.

JUST 995 of these D-Day Historic Coin Sets have been issued worldwide and they are bound to be in high-demand given the significance of this anniversary year and the global collectability of both coins.

If you want to get hold of one, you will need to be quick.
