The invasion saw the more than 18,000 Allied paratroopers dropped into the invasion area, whilst 7,000 warships delivered over 132,000 ground troops onto the beaches, according to the Imperial War Museum.

Meanwhile, Queen Victoria’s 200th birthday will also be marked.

The former monarch, born in May 1819, will feature on a rare £5 coin, alongside a penny-farthing bicycle, and other icons from her six-decade-long reign.
