At 0630 on June 6, 1944, the first assault teams left their landing crafts to take part in the largest sea, air and land invasion force in human history – D-Day! Now this historic dual-dated dollar, struck only in 1993, pays tribute to the U.S. involvement in WWII and is a fitting way to honor the war’s end!
This 90% silver dollar, with a total mintage of only 449,281, features a U.S. soldier coming ashore during the D-Day invasion of Normandy. The reverse bears the arm patch of the Allied Expeditionary Force command and a message from Supreme Allied Commander “Ike” Eisenhower that he gave to American soldiers at the start of the pivotal and valiant D-Day operation.
With sharp design details, these popular coins salute the heroic beachhead assault on Normandy and remember the contributions of America’s Greatest Generation to the Allied victory in World War II.
