Thanks in part to major advances in code breaking, the United States was able to pre-empt and counter Japan's planned ambush of its few remaining aircraft carriers. The United States Navy, under Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, inflicted irreparable damage on the Imperial Japanese Navy, commanded by Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, effectively destroying Japan's naval strength.

The Battle of Midway could be considered one of the most decisive battles of World War II. The victory allowed the United States and its allies to move into an offensive position – an important turning point in the Pacific campaign.

This impressive fine silver coin features a coloured illustration of Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet. He stands against an antique, engraved background featuring the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown, naval ships and war planes engaged in battle.

The coin sits comfortably inside an antique-looking timber box with a black velvet interior. The themed outer box features a black line art illustration of the battle imposed over an antiqued paper texture. The serialised Certificate of Authenticity is also themed and sits inside this box.
