The Normandy landings were the landing operations on Tuesday 6th June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during WWII. Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest multi-nation and multi-service seaborne invasion in history. D-Day ultimately forced the Germans to fight a war on two fronts, which they were unable to effectively counter-attack. On May 75th 1945, less than 12 months after Operation Neptune was launched, Germany surrendered to the Allies. 

The Official Merchant Navy Association Quarter Sovereign depicts three men to represent the Army, Navy & Air Force to symbolise the largest multi-service invasion of the Second World War.
