Product Description

A highly detailed and beautiful 2" hand-painted, shiny silver coin honoring the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. The Normandy landings were the landing operations on Tuesday, June 6th, 1944, of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during WWII. Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest multi-nation and multi-service seaborne invasion in history. D-Day ultimately forced the Germans to fight a war on two fronts, which they could not effectively counter-attack. On May 7th, 1945, Germany surrendered to the Allies less than 12 months after Operation Neptune began.
