The Guns Fell Silent – Remembering Armistice with a Silver Kilo Coin

The Royal Mint plays an important role in marking the significant moments in British history. The centenary of the First World War is one of these occasions, a chance to pay tribute to those who fought in the conflict. In 2014, we embarked on a five-year series of remembrance, taking the nation from the outbreak of war to the Armistice.

The collection comes to a close in 2018, as we look back to 1918 with the final kilo coin in the series. British sculptor Paul Day has created a moving design for the coin’s reverse, reminding us of the human cost of war with the image of a lone soldier. This edition of the coin is struck in a kilo of 999 fine silver, finished to Proof standard – the highest quality used for commemorative coins. Imperial War Museums have worked with us to produce the accompanying booklet, which includes specially sourced images and information, and they will receive a donation from each coin purchased to continue their important work.
