Buy That Invasion Bond
The 2nd release in the Fight For Freedom's Sake series encourages American citizens to support the war effort by purchasing bonds. Reminiscent of D-Day, WW2,(the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944), it is a reminder of how Americans and their Allies faced and overcame impossible odds in the fight for freedom. Created in the artistic style of WW2 propaganda war posters, this ingot features American GI's coming to shore under heavy artillery fire. The polished die struck image contrasts with the full-color image in the background and highlights the intensity of the fight. One interesting fact - this obverse is completely hand engraved.
The common reverse shows the grittiness of the fight with soldiers advancing through gunfire and smoke while flanked by tanks and aircraft.
The approximate dimensions of the limited edition, 2 ounce ingot are 2.50" x 1.70". Only 2,500 of each design will be minted. Each ingot is individually numbered, packed in a custom-fitted capsule and has a corresponding certificate of authenticity.
