The Battle of Crete is a campaign which deserves greater recognition than it is usually given. A defeat for the Allied forces, what is overlooked in that loss is the stalwart defence of the island our troops. One of the first and largest airborne assaults in military history was defended by battalions of Anzacs weary but steeled from the defence of the Greek mainland weeks before. Imagine the sight of thousands of enemy paratroopers reigning down from the sky bringing with them death and destruction. Now you can honour this moment in history with the ‘Battle of Crete Golden Proof Coin’, available only from The Bradford Exchange.

May 1941, the Battle of Crete drama and the urgency of the scene is brilliantly conveyed in our exclusive tribute. Fine minted details bring you the airborne invasion parachuting in over a map of Crete, while below a naval engaging ensues in full colour. A quote from British Prime Minister Winston Churchill - “Hence we will not say that Greeks fight like heroes but that heroes fight like Greeks” - recalls the courage of another group of heroes, the Greek contingent, whose gallantry alongside our Anzac forces forged a bond of respect that continues to this day. Layered in 24-carat gold and struck to a high specification, only 599 numbered issues will ever be minted. This coin measures at 65mm in diameter and weighing 110 grams. Each coin is individually numbered, meaning no two are the same. Each coin accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and a prestigious presentation case, which is supplied free of charge. Strong demand is expected, so don’t miss out! Order yours today!
