The Sovereign 1914 - The end of an era.
The First World War, conflict on an epic scale that claimed the lives of so many. For historians, military enthusiasts and anyone with personal links to the events of 1914-1918, this beautiful coin is a fitting tribute to the brave men and women who served on the front line, as we remember the sacrifices they made and give thanks for the peace we enjoy today. The coin marks the end of the golden age of The Sovereign, as they were gradually withdrawn to fund the war effort and ultimately replaced by banknotes.
