2018 is an incredibly poignant year as the world commemorates the First World War Armistice Centenary concluding four years of bloody and gruelling combat, the like of which had never been seen before.
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, the Allies of WWI and Germany signed an agreement for cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of the war, at last bringing peace after 4 years of conflict.
As a tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, a brand new £5 coin has been issued by The Royal Mint for 2018.
Designed by Royal Mint engraver Laura Clancy, the focal point of this year’s design is a stunning poppy design symbolic of the resilient and determined poppies that grew amidst the chaos in the valley of the Somme.
Like last year’s Remembrance Day coin, selective colour printing has been expertly used to draw attention to the vibrant red poppy design, a truly touching tribute to those lost in the war.
We expect this year’s centenary coin to have a very strong reception, based not only on its stunning design, but also the significance of this 100 year anniversary since Armistice.
