United Across Generations

Following news of Germany's surrender, 8 May 1945 – Victory in Europe (VE) Day – was declared a public holiday. With bunting strung from lamp posts and pubs stocked with beer, war-weary Britons could finally celebrate. People danced and hugged in the streets as sheer joy broke down social conventions. “This is your victory,” declared Winston Churchill, paying tribute to the British people who had remained unbowed by the bombings and blackouts. VE Day remains in the memory of all who witnessed it. Seventy-five years on, we thank the generation who gave so much and honour their spirit and sacrifice.

In 2020, we remember the first hopeful steps towards lasting peace and the promise of a brighter future with a commemorative £2 coin. Available in limited-edition gold Proof, silver Proof and silver Proof Piedfort editions, alongside a Brilliant Uncirculated edition, Royal Mint graphic designer Dominique Evans captures the magnitude of events with a design that puts people at the very heart of the coin – the rays emanating from the centre evoke a sense of hope. As we mark this landmark anniversary, it’s a poignant reminder of the strength of national unity in times of crisis.

What was your inspiration for this design?

My Nan very much inspired my design for this coin – bringing to life her stories of this time when she was a young girl in London and later sent to Bournemouth during the war.

What challenges did you encounter?

Capturing the scale of events was certainly a challenge. People weren’t just celebrating in Britain, but all across the world. Then I had to consider the full spectrum of emotions experienced at this time.
