Sterling Mint has commissioned The Heroes of 2020 Pure Silver Medal Range, to pay tribute to the key workers and professionals who have kept the country going during the lockdown caused by Covid-19. We would like to give every single person the opportunity to award a medal to their loved one, or themselves, as a way of saying thank you. Whether they are a nurse or doctor, an NHS volunteer, a firefighter or an essential worker; they are the heroes of today and for what they’ve done, they all deserve a medal.
Each medal features an interpretation of St George slaying the dragon, inspired by the George Cross, the nation’s highest award for civilian bravery. They also feature the legend “As good a generation as any”, reminding us of the Queen’s message to the nation. Not only have we commissioned 12 pure silver layered medals, 12 pure silver 1oz medals and 11 2oz medals, we will also donate 100% of the profits to the NHS Charities Together appeal (charity no 1186569), as our way of showing our appreciation during this time.
