The 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War is being called the last opportunity for veterans to participate and the events of those years will soon pass from living memory into history. There will be national and international commemorations, and the year also sees the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the last concentration camps, including the British liberation of Bergen Belsen. This End of the Second World War Coin Cover is just part of the range that reflects on the end of the war both in Europe and in the Far East, with three concepts: Celebrating, Returning and Remembering.

The beautifully illustrated End of the Second World War Coin Cover features all eight special stamps alongside the new Brilliant Uncirculated UK £2 VE Day Coin. The inserts are beautifully illustrated and focus on the celebrations around the world which followed the formal end to the Second World War. The stamps have been postmarked with a special handstamp marking the VE Day Anniversary on 8th May. Each cover is individually numbered with an Edition Limit of 10,000.

The special stamps in this issue are:

  • 2nd Class: A serviceman returns home to Oreston, South Devon, from his airbase in Lincolnshire
  • 2nd Class: Jubilant nurses celebrate VE Day in Liverpool
  • 1st Class: Ecstatic crowds celebrate VE Day in London’s Piccadilly
  • 1st Class: Evacuees return home to London after a wartime stay in Leicester
