Product Description

The role of British submarines is often overlooked when the story of World War II is told. Life on a submarine was gruelling and the undersea service was the most dangerous duty there was. However, they played a crucial role in the Allies’ victory. HMS Upholder was one of these unsung heroes.  By sinking 93,031 tons of enemy ships during 1941 and 1942, she was Britain’s most successful submarine, attacking enemy convoys and helping to keep supply lines open.

Now, to celebrate its important role in the Second World War, Danbury Mint is proud to present… HMS Upholder – Britain’s ‘Ace’ Submarine, an exclusive bronzed sculpture accompanied by a genuine 1941 silver sixpence and specially-commissioned commemorative medal.

With expert guidance from our military historian, our skilled craftsmen have successfully captured all of the key details. Look closely and you’ll notice many fine details, the bulbous nose, the external torpedo tubes, the deck gun, the periscope and radio mast. From the rudder to the “N99” Pennant markings, everything has been captured to the highest level of detail – and all are there for you to admire.

In an eye-catching bronze finish, the complete sculpture is set upon a wooden plinth, set with a genuine silver sixpence from 1941, the year the HMS Upholder first saw action against the German and Italian Navies, along with an exclusive commemorative medal. The front features the sub in raised relief. On the reverse are the impressive details of HMS Upholder’s legacy: “Britain’s most successful WWII submarine. Completed 24 patrols, sinking 93,031 tons of enemy shipping.”

Sculpture measures 9" x 6½" x 3½" including the plinth.
