Description

 

A world first quarter sovereign for a world class event – The 2018 Defence of Our Skies Colour Quarter Sovereign

Hattons of London is proud to release a world-first gold quarter sovereign to celebrate one hundred years of the defence of Britain’s skies – The 2018 Defence of Our Skies Colour Quarter Sovereign.  In 1918 – one hundred years ago – the Royal Air Force was formed and since that time has defended us from the air.  To mark this major event in the history of our nation, Hattons of London has independently designed a series of commemorative gold sovereign coins that feature the Union Flag in full colour.  Never before has our nation’s flag appeared in full colour on a gold sovereign coin!

New gold quarter sovereign pays tribute to a century of British military aviation

The sovereign coin is often used to celebrate events of great national significance, and now in 2018 it will be used to celebrate 100 years of the defence of our skies.

Control of the skies is a key factor in defending the realm, a fact brought home during the Battle of Britain, the most famous campaign for aerial supremacy in our nation’s history.  The design of this first ever colour quarter sovereign celebrates the iconic aircraft the Hawker Hurricane Mk1- a symbolic reminder of our nations’s proud aviation history.  This new gold coin is a fitting legacy of the last 100 years.

In honour of this special anniversary, 4,999 have been struck in solid 22 carat gold.  We expect a sell-out within weeks given the exceptional value for money that the Defence of Our Skies Colour Quarter Sovereign represents, its low mintage and the event it marks.  Authorised by Tristan da Cunha, and approved by both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Buckingham Palace, it is a wonderful celebration – and a world first one at that.

Other coins in the 2018 Defence of the Skies Colour Sovereign Gold Sovereign range are also available – please call 0333 234 3103 for details.
