Adolph Hitler’s last great counter offensive also brought about his ultimate downfall. Such was the significance of the Battle of the Bulge, it remains one of history’s most intriguing chapters. The Allies’ sworn duty to defend freedom proved to be a more powerful force than even Hitler could conceive. The Battle of the Bulge is still spoken in glowing terms amongst history enthusiasts and military strategists alike, for its inspiring legend of grit and determination from men who would not entertain the thought of surrender or failure. As the snow falls and German troops mass, freedom’s call remains the light which illuminates the path to victory...

The coin’s intricate detail recalls the courage of the Allies as it reveals a map of the campaign, including the famous “bulge” created in the Allied lines by the German forces. Symbolic snowflakes remind us of the freezing conditions endured by the Allied troops. A U.S. tank in the foreground gallantly defends the town of Bastogne, an Allied supply line, while U.S. Brigadier General Anthony McAuliffe’s response to the German attack reproduced below confirms the Allied tenacity in staving off any further German advance. It is this same determination which heralded the eventual fall of the Third Reich a mere handful of months away. In a very real sense, the end of WWII began in the snow-covered battle this crown coin commemorates so brilliantly in the luminous glow of 24-carat gold.

Impressive is the only way to describe this coin. At 65mm in diameter and weighing 110 grams, coins of such proportions are struck to mark occasions of great importance. Minted to Proof standards, the highest possible quality, it is entirely layered with pure 24-carat gold and accented with a 75th anniversary privy mark cast in valuable rhodium-platinum, creating a coin that is simply without parallel. The technical complexities of striking at such a large diameter ensures that the worldwide mintage has been set remarkably low, at just 1,944. This means that each one of these limited edition coins has a rarity value in addition to its collectability, which would usually push the release price too high for most people. Strong demand is expect so don’t delay, order yours now!
