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 Silver Star. The Silver Star was awarded by the United States for distinguished gallantry in action against an enemy or while serving with friendly forces. It is the third highest military award designated solely for heroism in combat. The coin also depicts US Marines fighting their way through the Japanese Islands.

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.
