A fitting tribute. A silver £20 coin – for just £20

A fine silver £20 coin with a moving design

In 1914 a conflict began that would plunge the world into war on an epic scale. It was a deadly conflict that would claim the lives of millions over the next four years. In 2014 The Royal Mint respectfully marks the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War for the nation. And this fine silver £20 coin is a beautiful, fitting and affordable way to remember such an important anniversary – it bears a specially-commissioned, poignant design, struck in fine silver, priced at just £20.

About the Coin

In the summer of 1914, as conflict on the continent loomed, troops on both sides were mobilised and the soldiers of the British Expeditionary Force departed these shores for France. A century later we remember those who gave so much in those first months of war, striking only the second ever UK £20 coin to honour the anniversary.

Exclusively available in the United Kingdom and direct from The Royal Mint, where it was struck, this is the £20 coin for everyone, not just collectors – made of fine silver, it carries a poignant new design and, most importantly, is priced at just £20. It is an official legal tender United Kingdom coin. You will want to keep it somewhere safe or put it on display. Like all British coins it carries the coinage portrait of Her Majesty The Queen on its obverse. And on the reverse is Britannia, a potent national symbol for centuries. Here she is depicted by sculptor John Bergdahl full of quiet belief, placing her trust in the first British troops to set sail across the Channel.

First purchase

By John,

This was my first purchase from Royal Mint, the online application was quick and easy.


As Always

By Paul,

Just as beautiful as the first, I'm sure as beautiful as the 3rd will be.

Looking forward to the next one, as this adds more power than the first.

Well done.


Excellent Coin

By Stephen,

This is a superb coin, well presented and tastefully commemorating a tragic event in world history. I can't understand those that comment on the value of the silver being less than £20. It's legal tender and the face value is £20.00 (although anyone would be mad to spend it). As it only costs £20.00 to buy, it's an absolute bargain. What's the component value of a £20.00 note? Almost worthless! I'd much rather have a fine silver coin than a paper note. This is definitely a keeper. I gave a 2013 St. George one (already changing hands for around 50% more than they originally cost) to my Grandson when he was born and a 2014 one to him when he was Christened. Hopefully The Royal Mint will keep on minting new coins every year so he will be able to build up a nice collection.
