The Little Ships of Dunkirk

In 1940, after being forced back by the advancing German army, the combined expeditionary forces, including British, French, Canadian and Belgian troops, found themselves stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk with little if any chance of reaching home. So, in the truest British spirit, the extraordinary happened, home came for them.

Winston Churchill once said, “We shall never surrender,” and never has that phrase ever been so epitomised than by the actions taken by The Army, The Royal Air Force, The Royal Navy, the Merchant Navy and the many civilians who subsequently sailed across the channel to give hope where there was none.                                                                           


The reverse of this incredible coin depicts a detailed representation of the little ships that made “an excursion into hell and came back glorious,” while the inscription around the edge says, “A Miracle of Deliverance, a quotation taken from a speech made at the time by Winston Churchill.

As you know, this fantastic coin is a very special tribute to the evacuation of over 300,000 troops from the beaches of Dunkirk.
