The story of the SS City of Cairo is an incredible story of tragedy, treachery, courage, and endurance. On a cold November night in the South Atlantic, a British passenger ship carrying a top-secret cargo was torpedoed and sunk by a German submarine.

With no news of the sinking reaching the mainland or the nearest land, a small island some 480 miles away, all hope for the survivors drifting in six damaged lifeboats seemed lost.

Yet, against all the odds, two-thirds were rescued, and a record-breaking salvage operation would later bring her secret treasure back to the surface and into the record books.

Rest assured, you have no further commitments and your purchase is protected by The London Mint Office 14-day “no quibble” guarantee.
