2014 - Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day

In this the centenary year of the outbreak of the First World War, it is even more important for us all to remember the millions lost in conflict.

To mark the occasion, Royal Mint engraver Laura Clancy has created a moving design of poppies falling gently to the base of the coin like the petals that fall from the air at the Festival of Remembrance each year.  The inspirational words, "Remember the Fallen" is inscribed on the top of each of the designs.

A trichromatic printing process layers colours onto the coin to capture the dramatic colouring of these beautiful flowers.

With each purchase, a donation will be made to the Imperial War Museum to support their work in keeping the experiences of those involved in, or affected by war, alive.

The obverse of the coin depicts an image of Her Majesty the Queen by Ian Rank- Broadley FRBS.
