The obverse bears a portrait  of HM the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley and includes a small exclusive Merchant Navy privy mark in the shape of an anchor.

Battle of the Atlantic veteran, Ron Quested has exclusively shared his wartime records, documents and photographs which have been painstakingly reproduced in an informative presentation pack. These accompany each Battle of Atlantic Gold Half Sovereign, offering a real insight into what life was like aboard the Liberty Ships at this dangerous time.

Don't miss your chance to own this tribute to an absolutely pivotal yet often overlooked chapter in the history of the Second World War.
