A Nation Stands Alone

Despite Neville Chamberlain’s proclamation of ‘peace for our time’ in 1938, a year later the invasion of Poland precipitated the Second World War and appeasement had run its course. The British public were resigned to the fact that Hitler had to be stopped but ahead lay struggle and sacrifice.

This Royal Mint Historics set brings together the circulating coinage of 1939 and the War Medal, issued for 28 days of operational service during the conflict. Sourced and authenticated by The Royal Mint, and offered for sale in premium condition, this coin and medal set captures the spirit of a nation standing alone as Nazi forces advanced through Western Europe.
