2020 marks a very solemn centenary: on the 11th of November it will be the 100th anniversary of the laying to rest of the Unknown Warrior ‘among the king’s in  Westminster Abbey, as a mark of respect to all who fell in The Great War.

The nature and scale of the First World War was unlike anything that had been seen before. Vast numbers of soldiers fell in the service of their country and have no known grave. To honour these men, and to ensure their sacrifice would be forever remembered, an unidentified British soldier from the battlefields in France was buried with due ceremony in Westminster Abbey to represent all those from across the Empire who fell in battle and had no proper burial. The coffin plate of the Unknown Warrior bears the inscription: ‘A British Warrior who fell in the Great War 1914-1918 for King and Country’.

It’s a sad fact that there is almost certainly no-one alive today who remembers that important occasion. The 100th anniversary of the Unknown Warrior offers us an opportunity to pay tribute to the many fallen soldiers whose names are unknown but whose service will never be forgotten.

That’s why, as part of the centenary commemorations, an exceptional gold quarter sovereign has been produced: a low mintage gold quarter sovereign will be struck on Remembrance Day – the 11th of the eleventh month – to mark 100 years since the Unknown Warrior was laid to rest in Westminster Abbey on that same day in 1920.

New gold quarter sovereign commemorates the centenary of the Unknown Warrior

This new quarter sovereign is struck on the 11th November 2020 and  features a design that will be immediately familiar to many of us – that of the unknown soldier, the regular army ‘Tommy’ who fought in the First World War.

The soldier stands in profile with his pack on his back and rifle in hand. His silhouette appears beside him, an indicator of the many who fell on the battlefields in service of their country and never returned home. The background of the coin reveals a circular etched pattern to represent the stained glass windows of Westminster Abbey, where the tomb of the Unknown Warrior lies.

The design on these exceptional commemorative sovereigns has been rendered with meticulous precision to create a poignant memorial to all the unknown warriors who have fallen in the service of their country.  Authorised by Alderney, and approved by both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Buckingham  Palace, it is a wonderful tribute.

Benefit from the SELL OUT GUARANTEE

Sell Out Guaranteed

The 2020 Unknown Warrior 100th Anniversary Gold Quarter Sovereign is limited to just 999 coins, but this is subject to our new SELL OUT GUARANTEE. What this means is that availability of this coin will end on 30th April 2021. At that time, any coins that are unsold will be melted down and verified to that effect.

At that point, we will issue to owners of this coin a new certificate stating the final mintage which may be lower, or possibly considerably lower, than 999. If the mintage remains at 999 then this means the coins sold out entirely to keen customers, and if not you may have secured for yourself a low mintage rarity.

Either way, there will be little or no surplus of this coin on the secondary market and so the coin you own will be a rarity!

The best part is that you may own this landmark gold coin for less than £100 – it may be yours at the introductory price of £99 (plus £4.99 postage and packing) – but only until 31st January 2021 after which the price will be £239, subject to availability. There is a limit of one coin per household at this introductory price.
