D-Day Commemoration Box

This month (6th June) marks the historic 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. IPL Packaging was commissioned by The South African Mint to design and manufacture a special edition collectible coin display case commemorating the D-Day landings.

Designed to contain a memorial medal and Kruger Rand set, the IPL design team developed a mahogany wood-veneered MDF case with custom-made interior fitments.

The box outer is decorated with electroform decal branding, with a special printing process allowing for placement of a sepia photograph of the troops landing Omaha Beach featured on the lid.

To enhance the feeling of history and tradition, and to reflect an aged appearance, a special weathered-leather strap encircles the box.  Inside, a felt-lined drawer, hidden in the base, houses a certificate of authenticity.
