The pace of World War II’s buildup was a slow burn that had its roots in the conclusion of World War I. The peace deal that ended World War I left Imperial Germany in shambles and deeply in debt. That set the stage for the rise of Adolph Hitler and fascism in Germany, but it was not the only root cause of the war.
A series of interconnected alliances and smaller, regional conflicts around the world would set the stage for the tinderbox that exploded starting in September 1939. These included the Second Sino-Japanese War in the Pacific, the Italian invasion of Ethiopia, and the Spanish Civil War.
The obverse field of the 2020 1/2 oz Gold End of World War II 75th Anniversary Coins includes a depiction of the American bald eagle. Here, the bald eagle is shown flying into the field with its wings spread out and one swooping below the design element. One of its talons holds an olive branch symbolizing peace.
On the reverse face of 2020 Gold End of World War II 75th Anniversary Coins is an image of an olive tree as the sun rises overhead in the background. This design is based on the 1945 World War II Victory Medal.
