Description

*** Royalty Precious Metals is proudly offering the 2024 1 oz Silver D-Day 80th Anniversary Coin Issued by Alderney. *** In the summer of 1944, the fight to liberate Europe from Nazi Germany started in earnest with the largest land, sea, and air operation ever coordinated in human history. The invasion was carried out by a coalition of Allied forces, primarily composed of American, British, Canadian, and other Commonwealth troops. The operation involved land, sea, and air forces coordinated under the overall command of American General Dwight D. Eisenhower. The Channel Island of Alderney off the Normandy coast, itself deeply impacted by World War II, has issued a commemorative silver bullion coin to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day. Now, 2024 1 oz Alderney Silver D-Day 80th Anniversary Coins are available for purchase online from Royalty Precious Metals.

  • Coins arrive inside plastic flips, tubes of 20, or Master Boxes of 500 coins!

  • Issued by Alderney!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
  • Issued a face value of 1 Pound.
  • The obverse features King Charles III.
  • On the reverse is the image of Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy.

Alderney is the northernmost of the Channel Islands and is situated the closest to Normandy, France. This made it a strategically significant location for controlling the English Channel and monitoring naval movements. The entire civilian population of Alderney, about 1,500 people, was evacuated in June 1940 before the German occupation. The island’s residents were relocated to the British mainland, significantly disrupting their lives.

Like the other Channel Islands (Guernsey, Jersey, and Sark), Alderney fell under the occupation of German forces early in the war. The Germans incorporated Alderney into their extensive fortification system known as the Atlantic Wall. The island’s defenses were intended to repel any Allied invasion from the sea. Alderney’s role in issuing these commemorative coins not only marks the importance of D-Day in turning the tide of the war.

The obverse side of the 2024 1 oz Silver D-Day 80th Anniversary Coin comes with a portrait of King Charles III. This left-profile bust of King Charles III was created by Jody Clark, the artist who was also responsible for the final bust of Queen Elizabeth II. Charles III’s portrait lacks a crown.

On the reverse field of the 2024 Alderney Silver D-Day 80th Anniversary Coins, you will find a depiction of Allied troops taking control of the beaches of Normandy. The invasion involved simultaneous landings on five beaches along the Normandy coast, codenamed Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword. These beaches were divided among the Allied forces, with American troops landing at Utah and Omaha, British troops at Gold and Sword, and Canadian troops at Juno.

These 2024 1 oz Alderney Silver D-Day 80th Anniversary Coins are available to you individually packaged in plastic flips. Multiples arrive in acrylic tubes of 20 coins or Master Boxes of 500 coins, with a total of 25 tubes in each box.
