Remembrance Day Coin

This 2016 Remembrance Day coin design was created by Royal Mint coin designer Thomas Docherty. He chose the poppy wreath as it seemed the most symbolic way that nations remember and commemorate the fallen. His design features the wreath that lies at The Royal Mint’s war memorial at its home in Llantrisant, South Wales. Thomas visited the commonwealth graveyard in Cathays Cemetery, Cardiff to research memorial designs.

"This wreath is not only personal to us at The Royal Mint but also reflects the ‘everyman’ we all commemorate on Remembrance Day; from the wreath-layers to the poppy wearers all over our country. I portrayed the wreath from a low angle to give it a feeling of pride. I wanted to paint the colours of the poppies boldly and vibrantly, hopefully emphasising that the poppy is a symbol of remembrance, but also one of hope for the future."
