VE Day Coinage Collection

On 8 May 1945, the news of Germany’s surrender was made official. After almost six years of fighting, the Second World War in Europe was finally at an end. Unbowed by the hardships they had endured, across Britain people rejoiced in the streets. 

This set brings together the circulating coinage of 1945 and the official VE Day 75 commemorative £2 coin, issued to mark the anniversary of one of the greatest days in British history. Featuring coins sourced and authenticated by The Royal Mint, and offered for sale in premium condition, this carefully curated set captures the spirit and stoicism of the wartime generation and the gratitude of those that followed.
