Why purchase this £5 Great Britain 2020 28.28 g Silver End of WWII - 75th Anniversary Proof?
World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history. Tens of millions gave their lives, many of them willingly, many unwillingly, in efforts to stop the spread of fascism. Now, The Royal Mint marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the war with this stunning silver proof.
Poignant War and Peace Design by Matt Dent and Christian Davies
Obverse: On the obverse is a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. She dons earrings and her Royal Diamond Diadem. Her name and abbreviated Latin title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG FID DEF," are inscribed along the rim, joined by an inscription of the face value of the coin, "5 POUNDS."
Reverse: Matt Dent and Christian Davies created the simple reverse design that was inspired by inscriptions on war memorials. The words "WAR" and "PEACE" intersect, sharing the "A." This design is encircled by a rim frame in which there are inscriptions that note the event for which the coin was issued, "THE END OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR," and the anniversary dates, "1945-2020."
