Dame Vera Lynn is one of the United Kingdom’s most iconic entertainers. This singing sensation became a symbol of British resolve and her broadcasts brought comfort to millions during the dark days of the Second World War.
As we reflect on Dame Vera’s extraordinary career, two collector sets pay tribute to her remarkable life and legacy. A gold set pairs a 2022 quarter-ounce commemorative Proof coin with a 1917 Sovereign, which was issued in the same year that Dame Vera was born, whilst a silver set includes a 2022 £2 commemorative Proof coin with a 1917 half-crown.
