Item Description

I am selling this commemortive coin in its collectors case. It has space for additonal coins should you start a full collection of your own. The coin is struck to a collectors quality finish from non precious metal, and features a depiction of a young wartime lady embracing her soldier sweetheart. 

 …‘We’ll meet again, don’t know where,

 don’t know when…’ 

I’d wager that as soon as you read that first line you sang the rest of the verse, and do you know why? Because it is one of the most recognisable and uplifting songs ever recorded, sung of course by The Forces Sweetheart, the wonderful, Dame Vera Lynn.

A true icon of the British Empire, Dame Vera Lynn’s songs lightened the load of a nation and lifted the hearts of millions throughout the Second World War, reassuring everyone that despite their worries, do you know what?

‘…everything was going to be okay!’

The sound of Dame Vera Lynn’s velvet voice filling the airwaves with classics such as ‘We’ll Meet Again,’ and the unforgettable, ‘White Cliffs of Dover,’ offered those serving on foreign shores or keeping the home fires burning, a glimmer of hope in the darkest of times.

In recognition of this wonderful woman’s selfless contribution throughout the war years and beyond, a beautiful, celebratory coin with the image on the obverse of this wonderful tribute is Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf while the reverse pays tribute to Dame Vera’s popular title of ‘The Forces Sweetheart,’ and depicts a young woman embracing a naval officer, and surrounded by a line from her famous song, ‘We’ll Meet Again.’
