2020 Elizabeth II Gold BU Sovereign VE Day Strike of the Day

£675.00
(VAT Exempt)
From an edition of 750: 2020 Sovereign marking the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day. On Tuesday 8 May 1945 national celebrations erupted following the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany, effectively ending World War Two in Europe. In the UK more than one million people celebrated in the streets with crowds in London massing in Trafalgar Square and in front of Buckingham Palace where they were addressed by Prime Minister Winston Churchill, accompanied by King George VI and the royal family, including his daughter, the future Queen Elizabeth II. While the war against Japan would not end for several months, VE Day is still celebrated as a public holiday across much of Europe. This Royal Mint Sovereign was struck while the UK remembered the momentous day, seventy-five years on. Like all Strike of the Day Sovereigns, this one has a BU finish, allowing you to enjoy the obverse portrait of Her Majesty the Queen and the classic Saint George reverse in all their glory. A tiny VE Day 75 mint mark appears below the Saint’s horse. The coin maintains the traditional specifications: it’s composed of 7.98 grams of 22 carat gold and has a diameter of 22.05 millimetres. It has a plain edge. It’s offered in its original presentation packaging from the Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
