This year marks the 80th anniversary of the evacuation of more than 300,000 Allied soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk, France between 26 May and 4 June 1940. After being forced back by the advancing German army, the combined expeditionary forces found themselves stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk with little if any chance of reaching home. British destroyers were unable to reach the shallow waters, so in the truest British Spirit, approximately 850 privately owned ‘little ships’ and commercial vessels braved enemy gunfire to cross the English Channel to help bring them home. Home had come for them. 

In commemoration of this extraordinary event, that can only be described as “snatching victory from the jaws of defeat,” The London Mint Office, in official partnership with the Merchant Navy Association, is proud to reveal a brand new, 1 oz pure Silver commemorative coin

In a year when we also celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day, and the 80th anniversary of Churchill stepping up to become Britain’s prime minister, this beautiful coin has more than just one poignant message.

Designed by Maurice Pierse, the scene depicts soldiers finally aboard a ship, making the long-awaited and treacherous journey home.  One soldier has lost his helmet and is clutching his head to avoid the enemy aircraft above, while another has his gun poised ready to defend himself and his comrades from enemy attack.

Struck in 1 oz of pure Silver to Proof quality, the highest possible standard, this exceptional commemorative coin is strictly limited to just 4,999 coins worldwide and acts as an everlasting reminder of when Britain came together to emerge victorious despite overwhelming odds.

A MIRACLE OF DELIVERANCE

The escape and rescue captured the hearts and minds of the British people at a time when it seemed all hope was lost. What was actually a defeat appeared like a victory when so many men were brought home safely - a true military miracle. The phrase “Dunkirk spirit” is one that is still used today to describe the morale of the troops and the British public, in the face of adversity.
