The Brilliant Uncirculated mintage of 94,708 was just a fraction of the proof issue's total, making it much more elusive today. This dramatic commemorative issue honors the 50th anniversary of World War II with an engraving of an American G.I. hitting the beach at Normandy on D-Day. On the reverse is Eisenhower's D-Day message and the insignia of SHAEF, the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force.
Please note that our modern commemoratives are not always available in the original mint packaging.
