A Shared Struggle

Unbowed by the bombings and blackouts, the British people were justifiably proud of the role they played in Hitler’s defeat. Bringing together the circulating coinage of 1945 and the Defence Medal, this historic set tells the story of the Second World War from the perspective of those on the Home Front. Featuring coins sourced and authenticated by The Royal Mint, and offered for sale in premium condition, this carefully curated set pays tribute to the Blitz spirit of the British people and the bravery of those who risked their lives to protect them.
