The Longest Day

On 6 June 1944 the attack Hitler feared finally came. Allied Forces converged on five Normandy beaches – unprecedented in scale, this was an all-out assault by land, sea and air. With the beachheads secured, the Allies could fight their way inland and liberate occupied Europe. On the 75th anniversary of D-Day, we retell the story of the plan that turned the tide of the Second World War.

Turning to military maps and period artwork for inspiration, Royal Mint graphic designer Stephen Taylor pays tribute to this daring undertaking on this commemorative £2 coin. Finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard, the epic story of the largest amphibious assault of all time is perfectly rendered in miniature.
