Description

The 75th Anniversary of VE Day this year has been marked by some incredible commemorative issues, and this set encompasses the very best.

Featuring five carefully chosen commemorative coins from world renowned Mints and including The Royal Mint’s 75th Anniversary of VE Day £2 coin as the centrepiece, these commemorative issues have been brought together for the first time in the remarkable 75th Anniversary of VE Day Allied Nations Coin Pack.

The coins included with this extraordinary set are:

  • United Kingdom £2

This United Kingdom £2 coin by Royal Mint designer Dominique Evans features a woman holding a newspaper aloft in crowd of celebrating people, set against a backdrop of the word ‘VICTORY’. The edge inscription reads ‘JUST TRIUMPH AND PROUD SORROW’.

  • Canada $2

As a tribute to the fallen and a promise to never forget, Canada have issued a commemorative $2 coin marking the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. This coin re-creates the iconic Victory Nickel design on a brand new $2 coin.

  • Belgium 2.5 Euro

The Royal Mint of Belgium issued this 2.5 Euro coin designed by Luc Luycx to honor this 75th anniversary. The reverse shows the newly liberated Brussels on 4th September 1944. This coin is limited to a maximum circulation of 50,000 pieces worldwide.

  • Netherlands 5 Euro

Although part of the Netherlands had already been liberated in 1944, it wasn’t until the 5th May 1945 that the whole of the Netherlands was allowed to live in freedom. This 5 Euro is the official commemorative coin to mark such an important moment in history and has been designed by artist Marijke van Warmerdam with only 15,000 Silver-Plated pieces are available worldwide.

  • France 2 Euro

Renowned French army officer and statesman, Charles de Gaulle led the Free French Forces against Nazi Germany in World War II. This 2 Euro coin features two profiles of de Gaulle as both the revered army general during the war, and as President of France during his second term. A Lorraine cross also features on the design as the symbol of free France, chosen by General de Gaulle.
