NILES, Ill., May 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bradford Exchange Mint, source for coins of enduring value worldwide, announces an extraordinary tribute to the "Greatest Generation" heroes as we mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

D-Day — 6 June 1944 — over 150,000 heroic Allied forces from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and 10 other nations participated in the largest air, land and amphibious assault of the 20th century.  Code-named "Operation Overload", the success of the monumental D-Day mission led to European victory in World War II. Now, as we approach the 80th anniversary of that unforgettable day of heroism, heartbreak, and timeless courage a limited edition Silver masterpiece has been created. An intricately sculpted and oversized Silver ingot, containing 2 troy ounces of 99.9% pure Silver, portrays three courageous Allied soldiers storming the beaches at Normandy on the front. In addition, a quote from the Supreme Allied Commander, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, states "The Free Men of the World are Marching to Victory" is engraved at the bottom.
