It is our duty to keep their legacy alive

Join me in remembering the unnamed heroes in this important centenary year

100 years ago this year, on Remembrance Day, an unnamed British soldier was buried ‘amongst the kings’ at Westminster Abbey as a national symbol of gratitude to those who never made it home. The grave has famously become known as the ‘Tomb of the Unknown Soldier’, and ensured that, although unidentified, their death was not without purpose, and their sacrifice would never be forgotten. The burial inspired many more countries to honour their war dead in the same way.

The burial of the unknown soldier continues to unite a nation in mourning, where Britons from all walks of life come together each year in respect for the brave man, and the hundreds of thousands like him who gave up their lives for king and country.

Struck in the traditional 22-carat gold to Proof quality, the highest possible standard, the coin features a heraldic shield framed with two lions, and within the shield, the resting place of the Unknown Soldier - Westminster Abbey. Above is a Brodie Helmet, an iconic symbol of the First World War and amongst poppies is the inscription “They Buried Him Among The Kings”, from the gravestone of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
