True British Courage Immortalised in Solid Gold

This year marks the 80th anniversary of one of the most pivotal actions of the Second World War, the evacuation of Dunkirk. Between 26 May and 4 June 1940, after being forced back by the advancing German army, the combined expeditionary forces found themselves stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk with little if any chance of reaching home.

British destroyers were unable to reach the shallow waters, so in the truest British Spirit, about 850 privately owned ‘little ships’ and commercial vessels braved enemy gunfire to cross the English Channel to help bring them home. Home had come for them.

The rescue captured the hearts and minds of the British people when it seemed all hope was lost but what was actually a defeat, appeared a victory when so many men were brought home safely. The operation was a military miracle, and the phrase “Dunkirk Spirit,” is still used today to describe the courage of the troops and the British public in the face of adversity.

In commemoration of this extraordinary event, and in partnership with the Merchant Navy Association, we are proud to announce a brand-new quarter sovereign, dedicated to all those who took part in this pivotal moment of British history. In a year when we also celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day and the 80th anniversary of Churchill stepping up to become Britain’s prime minister, this beautiful coin has more than just one poignant message.
