This is so special to me because my Dad was there on that beach on D Day, and thanks to a dear friend I also have a little bit of sand from the beach as well. Thank you so much for offering this keepsake. I was in the Army reserves so this keepsake, the sand and my Dad’s medals along with my time served hold a very special place in my heart.
I have purchased one of these coins for myself, and I truly do love it, but the second one I purchased was for a lady friend whose father survived the Normandy invasion at Omaha Beach. There were 50 men in his company, and he was one of three to survive the invasion. He then fell in with General Patton’s 3rd Army and was critically wounded and left for dead at the Battle of ST LO, which is also depicted on the coin. This coin is a magnificent piece of art that both myself and my friend will always treasure. Words do not do it justice. After seeing this coins magnificence, I had to have the coin depicting Iwo Jima. I hope there will be more of these collector pieces to come in the future.
Love it, my dad was in WWII !
