A unique solid 22-carat gold half sovereign, commemorating the centenary of WWI and officially endorsed by the Lest We Forget Association.

2018 marked 100 years since the end of the First World War, one of the greatest conflicts in our history. Described as The War To End All Wars, over one million British people gave their lives in service to their country. In honour of their bravery and sacrifice, a Gold Half Sovereign coin was issued.

The official Gold Half Sovereign of the Lest We Forget Association

Each year, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, people the world over unite and remember the fallen with a poppy – a way to show our appreciation and pay tribute to all those who served our nation. Officially endorsed by Lest We Forget Association, this Gold Quarter Sovereign is an enduring way to honour our brave heroes and support those still affected by conflicts both past and present. Established at the end of WWI, the Lest We Forget Association supports the welfare of disabled Armed Forces and Merchant Navy personnel, both active and otherwise, in hospital or at home.
