The 2005 George Cross Cupro Nickel Coin Coin Quality

History knows only one D-Day, 6th June 1944 when Allied forces landed in occupied France and began the liberation of Europe after being occupied for four years. Over three million service personnel from different countries were involved in the campaign which began at midnight with British air forces landing troops at the bridges over the Orne River followed by the seaborne invasion on five beaches where soldiers, tanks and vehicles disembarked their landing craft and attacked the German Atlantic Wall. D-Day was a great success and a triumph of intelligence and planning which paid off.

To commemorate the 60th Anniversary of this date, the Isle of Man Government has approved the issue of a series of striking crowns which depict key events of World War II. Each Crown also shows a medal awarded by the various Allied Forces involved, to civilians and military personnel for acts of bravery, honour and heroism.

The design on this uncirculated Cupro Nickel coin features The George Cross. The Cross was awarded to civilians for an act of the greatest heroism or of the most conspicuous courage in circumstances of extreme danger. The coin depicts the George Cross with a scene showing people being rescued from burning and bombed houses during The Blitz.

Approved by Buckingham Palace the obverse of each IOM coin carries a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD.
