UK 1944 Flown Sixpence D-Day Frame

  • £25.00


Just 1,944 collectors have the rare opportunity to secure a 1944 Sixpence flown on board the Douglas C47 Dakota aircraft in the 80th anniversary year of D-Day.

This special D-Day Sixpence will fly over Normandy on 2nd June 2024, taking off from North Weald Airfield, a significant location in the air defence strategy of the UK in WWII.

Here’s why you need one for your collection:

  • Features an original 1944 Silver Sixpence – struck in the year of the Normandy Landings
  • Flown on board a WWII Dakota aircraft – a plane pivotal to the success of D-Day
  • Over 1,000 of these planes were used during the 1944 operation to drop paratroopers and their supplies onto the Normandy beaches.
  • 1944-dated British coins have become extremely sought-after in the 80th anniversary year, but what makes this edition truly extraordinary is its profound journey.
  • Flown over Normandy in the 80th anniversary of D-Day – a true piece of history

But remember, just 1,944 of these special edition collector’s frames are available.

So click 'pre-order' now to secure yours now before they take off!
