2018 Alderney World War One Centenary Gold Matt Proof Quarter Sovereign

  Description    Specifications     Free Delivery  


A magnificent 22 Carat Gold Coin for a hugely significant centenary commemoration

On the 11th November 1918 the guns fell silent and over 4 years of the bloodiest fighting during World War One came to an end.

To mark the 100th Anniversary of the End of World War One a specially commissioned Gold Quarter Sovereign has been released.

Officially approved by Buckingham Palace for release, the new Quarter Sovereign coin has been struck in 22 Carat Gold to a rarely seen matt proof finish, which for the first time has been used on a modern British Isles Commemorative Sovereign and features a poignant design, produced especially for this centenary year of the end of The Great War.

Centenary of the end of The Great War

War broke out between the United Kingdom and Germany in August 1914. What was suppose to be a brief conflict ended up lasting over 4 years of the bloodiest fighting, involving nations throughout the world. In the end the war would account for over 30 million casualties. The aftermath would see the creation of the annual Remembrance Day commemorations that we know today and the national monument at Whitehall.

100 years on it is right that throughout the world issuing authorities have been keen to release commemorations to mark this significant landmark. And nothing is more important than the release of a new British Isles sovereign piece, such as I can offer you the chance to secure today.

Tiny Edition Limit

As well as the significance worldwide of the centenary commemorations, the mintage of the new quarter sovereign coin means that a sell-out is highly likely. The 2018 Centenary of the End of World War One Gold Quarter Sovereign has an edition limit of just 1,999 coins worldwide – a tiny mintage for a gold coin of this importance. In addition, the coin is struck to an impressive matt finish - the first time a British Isles Quarter Sovereign has been issued featuring this eye-catching minting technique.

As a result, it is more important than ever to respond quickly to secure your new gold quarter sovereign. With demand already proving high for the new release the mintage of 1,999 coins is not expected to last long for this important commemorative release. With that in mind please make your reservation today.
