The Normandy landings, also known as D-Day, took place on 6 June 1944 and marked the start of the campaign to free north-west Europe from the Nazis. It proved to be a significant turning point during the Second World War and was a major contributor to the Allied Forces’ success.
Struck to honour the 75th anniversary of D-Day, this Piedfort UK 50p coin was issued in 2019 as part of a limited-edition military themed coin set.
