For an historic milestone, a milestone sovereign
2018 marked one hundred years since the Armistice on 11-11-1918 that brought the First World War to an end. As part of the solemn commemorations exceptional sovereign coins have been struck – The 2018 Armistice Centenary Remembrance Gold Gallantry Proof Half and Full Sovereign.
This new coin set is struck in solid 22 carat yellow gold, but most of the coin is layered with Ruthenium, one of the Platinum family of metals, which produces a more respectful, darkened finish. The exception is the main design motif – the Distinguished Service Order featured on the sovereign and the Distinguished Service Cross on the half sovereign, established for rewarding individual instances of meritorious or distinguished service in war – which shines through in brilliant 22 carat gold. The aim of this design is to highlight the gallantry of all who served king and country in this global conflict.
This is the first coin of its kind in the world, and is authorised by Tristan da Cunha, and approved by both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Buckingham Palace, it is a wonderful commemoration – and a world first one at that.
Many people will want one of these coins as part of their own commemoration of the centenary of the First World War, and of the gallantry of those who served. Those coins will most likely be put away at the back of cupboards or tucked away in sock drawers as family heirlooms, never to see the light of day again – which in turn will make acquiring these coins on the secondary market very difficult indeed. Don’t take that risk on such an important new gold coin set – place your order today.
Comes in a luxury presentation box with space to put your 2018 Armistice Centenary Remembrance Gold Gallantry Quarter Sovereign along side the half sovereign and sovereign.
