Join the Celebration with Great Britain’s 75th Anniversary of VE Day Coin

May 8, 1945 marked the end of World War II in Europe. It was proclaimed Victory in Europe Day — VE-Day. And to celebrate the 75th anniversary of that glorious moment in time, Great’s Britain’s prestigious Royal Mint released a sentimental series of commemorative coins that capture the joyous celebrations that spread across the world following the surrender of Nazi Germany, thus bringing an end to the war in the European Theater.

Struck with an inner ring of Copper-Nickel (CuNi) and an outer ring of Nickel-Brass, this 12-gram legal-tender £2 coin features a detailed image of Londoners celebrating the news. At 3 pm on VE Day, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill made a national radio broadcast announcing the welcome news that the war had ended in Europe. Thousands of revelers greeted Churchill later when he appeared on the balcony of the Ministry of Health building in central London where he gave an impromptu speech. Ever the shrewd politician, Churchill confirmed with the Ministry of Food that there was enough beer in the capital before he announced a national holiday!
