2017 - Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day 2017

The Military and Remembrance theme is very important to the Island of Alderney with its military history and allegiance to the throne.  Alderney is therefore pleased to be able to issue a further coin to mark the annual Remembrance Day ceremonies and to make a humble tribute towards our military personnel both past and present. 

The design is based on the symbolic image of the poppy, with a large poppy being the focal point of the coin with a number of smaller poppies surrounding it.  This is a unique design by renowned numismatic artist Michael Guilfoyle. 

The obverse of the coins will depict the previously approved portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, by Joel Iskowitz, surrounded by the inscription "Elizabeth II Dei Gra Regina, Alderney, CI, 2017"
