Developing her singing style in the East End working men’s clubs where she first performed, Dame Vera Lynn possessed a unique voice that propelled her to global stardom. Warm and authentic, she became a symbol of hope during the Second World War when her radio show, Sincerely Yours, brought comfort to millions, especially servicemen far from home.
After the war, Dame Vera stayed important through decades of musical change, continuing to record, perform and win new fans even in her eighties and nineties. She was a tireless campaigner for charity and her work lives on through her eponymous foundation dedicated to helping children with motor learning impairments.
Acclaimed as a national treasure, a new commemorative UK coin pays tribute to Dame Vera’s extraordinary life and legacy. Available in a range of gold and silver Proof editions, as well as a Brilliant Uncirculated edition, it is a moving celebration of one of the United Kingdom’s most iconic entertainers.
