A nice orginal Dutch made Battle of Arnhem commemoration coin i.e medallion with a miniature
This is a nice example of a difficult to find original Dutch made Battle of Arnhem commemoration coin i.e medallion. This coin i.e medallion was made in 1946 and designed by J.J. van Goor. The coin dispicts a emblem of the Airborne troops between the arms of Arnhem and Oosterbeek. On the other side there is a silhouette of burning Arnhem and Oosterbeek above which two parachutists come down. A 4-line poem between the arms of Great Britain and Poland. This highly detailed coin is in a perfect and un-cleaned condition. The security pin of the miniature has been broken at some stage in time (see photo). Hard to find.
