Now, 75 years on, The Bradford Exchange has brought together all nine coins that were struck that momentous year, 1945, together with an original wartime service medal, the 1939-1945 Star, as a unique tribute to the bravery and courage of the Second World War generation who fought for our liberation.
The Bradford Exchange has sought fine specimens of all nine coins that were in circulation on 6 June 1944. These are all genuine coins, each of them 75 years old. These coins belong to a bygone era when money still had ‘the look’ and ‘the feel’ of money. The silver coins contained real silver and our money had nicknames such as a ‘bob’, ‘tanner’ and ‘thruppenny bit’.
This set includes the five silver coins (half crown, florin, shilling, sixpence, and threepence) and the three bronze coins (penny, half penny, and farthing). In addition, the rare Heaton "H" Penny is also included in this set. This was one of Britain’s most illustrious circulating coins that was not struck at the Royal Mint.
The silver coin is struck in 925 Sterling silver – the traditional purity for commemorative crown editions. The base metal crown is layered in pure Palladium Platinum – over three times scarcer than gold and the poppies are accented in red.
