When Alf Ramsey took over as England manager, he made a bold prediction that England would win the 1966 World Cup. On the 30th July 1966 he was proved right as his team won the famous Jules Rimet trophy in front of 96,924 fans at Wembley, and another 400 million people around the world! Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton, Geoff Hurst, Martin Peters, and more… the names of all the players who beat West Germany that day have since become immortalised in the annals of the English game.Now, to honour England’s incredible World Cup victory, Danbury Mint is proud to offer a unique collectable – The Deluxe 1966 England Winners Commemorative Set, a sterling silver proof coin and the four commemorative stamps displayed in a handsome wooden display that’s available exclusively from Danbury Mint.
