2020 marks the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. The day which signified the end of World War II in Europe and peace to our nation. Following news of Germany's surrender, 8 May 1945 – Victory in Europe (VE) Day – was declared a public holiday. With bunting strung from lamp posts and pubs stocked with beer, war-weary Britons could finally celebrate. People danced and hugged in the streets as sheer joy broke down social conventions. “This is your victory,” declared Winston Churchill, paying tribute to the British people who had remained unbowed by the bombings and blackouts. VE Day remains in the memory of all who witnessed it. Seventy-five years on, we thank the generation who gave so much and honour their spirit and sacrifice.

In 2020, we remember the first hopeful steps towards lasting peace and the promise of a brighter future with a commemorative UK £2 coin. Available in limited-edition gold Proof, silver Proof and silver Proof Piedfort editions, alongside a Brilliant Uncirculated edition, Royal Mint graphic designer Dominique Evans captures the magnitude of events with a design that puts people at the very heart of the coin – the rays emanating from the centre evoke a sense of hope. As we mark this landmark anniversary, it’s a poignant reminder of the strength of national unity in times of crisis.
 
We are also honored to present a set of seven 50p coins from the Isle of Man. 75 Years ago in May,  Churchill addressed the nation, “God bless you all. This is your VICTORY! It is the victory of the cause of freedom in every land. In all our long history we have never seen a greater day than this”.
 

Each of these seven brand new coins beautifully depicts a design and letter to unveil the word 'VICTORY'. 

V – Churchill with his famous V for Victory gesture

I – Citizens of the Isle of Man celebrating

C – Soldiers shaking hands in front of Trafalgar Square

T – HMS Dido Battleship returning home

O – Spitfires flying over St. Paul’s Cathedral

R – Street party celebrations

Y – A soldier returning home to his family
