On June 6, 1944, some 156,000 Allied troops - American, British and Canadian - displayed unforgettable heroism when they stormed the heavily fortified coastline of Occupied France in Normandy. This pivotal battle, known as D-Day, was the long-awaited beginning to the end of the war in Europe, and helped ensure our freedom for years to come. Now you can commemorate the anniversary of the day that changed history with The 75th Anniversary of D-Day Proof Coin Collection, an exclusive presentation from The Bradford Exchange Mint. This collection begins with Issue One, D-Day.

Intended as collectors\' items, each non-monetary commemorative coin in this collection commemorates D-Day\'s 75th anniversary by featuring a sepia-toned image of the Allied forces embarking on D-Day. Adding to the impact of the historic imagery, the border of each coin is enhanced with a portion of authentic sand from Normandy Beach. The obverse side portrays the Allies\' plan of attack plus a quote from General Eisenhower\'s famous D-Day address: \"WE WILL ACCEPT NOTHING LESS THAN FULL VICTORY!\" Presented in prized proof condition, each coin is richly plated in 99.9% silver for enduring value, and arrives in a crystal-clear capsule for heirloom preservation.

Coins measure 1.5\" in diameter; 3.8 cm in diameter; display box measures 11-1/2\" L x 2\" H x 4-5/8\" D; 29.2 cm L x 5.1 cm H x 11.7 cm D
