Description

The Royal Dutch Mint issues a special set in honor of the liberation of the South of the Netherlands, 75 years ago. In the set you find two official silver commemorative coins: the Market Garden 5 Euro Coin and the Canadian “The Battle Of The Scheldt” Coin.

Market Garden 5 Euro Coin Silver Proof
It has been 75 years since Operation Market Garden took place, the largest airborne operation in history. The Royal Dutch Mint honours this anniversary with an official commemorative coin: The Market Garden 5 Euro Coin. Operation Market Garden took place in September 1944 and consisted of two parts: the airborne operation (Market) and the ground offensive from Belgium (Garden). It was a bold plan by British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, which was executed by 41,628 people from the English, American and Polish airborne troops and three divisions of ground troops.
