On 4th June, 1940, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill addressed the House of Common and made his impassioned ‘we will fight on the beaches’ speech. It roused a nation and a free world into action and defiance as the spectre of the Nazi regime continued to spread across Europe. Hours earlier Churchill’s resolve and that of all of Great Britain was strengthened by the gallant efforts of 850 civilian boats who massed in the French port of Dunkirk to rescue over 300,000 men facing certain slaughter at the hands of German forces. With no thought of their own safety, the captains and crews of these boats changed the course of World War II. The Dunkirk Spirt, as it has come to be known, has passed into the vernacular. The very definition of a nevergive - in fighting determination, the events of Dunkirk remind us to help and stand together when all seems darkest. Courage, in the face of overwhelming odds, lets us grow and endure. Today, the Dunkirk Spirit shines anew in the shimmer of 24-carat gold. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has approved for minting a new five crown coin celebrating the boats little and big, that helped save countless lives. ‘The Little Ships of Dunkirk 80th Anniversary Five Crowns,’ available only from The Bradford Exchange.

Our coin captures the plight of the stranded Allied soldiers, but elevates it within the strength of the indomitable Dunkirk Spirit. In the foreground, the soldiers wait. Massed on the beaches, their fate and their lives rest in the armada of little boats. Behind, an unseen enemy advances closer and closer to the beach. Fraught with peril and the threat of the unknown, the scene ends triumphantly as the little boats are shown moving towards the shore. Minted to Proof standards, the highest possible quality, it is entirely layered with pure 24-carat gold, enhanced with valuable rhodium-platinum inlaid into the 80th anniversary seal. The edition is minted in the highly coveted 65mm diameter size and weighs 110g, more than three times that of a regular crown. Arrives with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and FREE luxury deluxe presentation case. Limited to 1,940 issues worldwide, the coin is likely to attract attention from history enthusiasts as well as coin collectors. High demand is expected. Don’t delay, order yours now!
