This year marks a century since our Royal family changed their name to Windsor – a significant milestone in British Royal history.
The House of Windsor came into being in 1917, when the name was adopted during the First World War as the British Royal Family's official name by a proclamation from King George V. It replaced the historic name of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and remains the family name of our current British Royal Family.
The name Windsor has had a long association with monarchy in Britain, through the town of Windsor, Berkshire, and Windsor Castle itself which features on the badge of the House of Windsor.
To mark the centenary, a brand new limited edition Gold-Plated Crown Coin has been issued.
24-Carat Gold-Plating & Proof Finish
Fully plated in 24-Carat Gold the coin is struck to a Pristine Proof finish – the highest grade of finish found on collectable coins.
The reverse has been designed by heraldic artist Neil Bromley and features a depiction of Windsor Castle surrounded by an acorn wreath as seen on the badge of the House of Windsor and topped with a crown.
Fully approved by Her Majesty the Queen, your coin will come displayed in a deluxe presentation case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
