Time to Reflect – A Silver Coin to Mark the Moment of Armistice
The Armistice was signed 100 years ago, bringing the First World War to an end. A century on, our five-year programme of commemoration telling the story of the conflict from outbreak to Armistice also draws to a close. The final five-ounce coin in the series marks the moment the guns fell silent. It has been struck in five ounces of 999 fine silver, finished to Proof standard – the finest finish used in the minting of commemorative coins.
British sculptor Paul Day is no stranger to creating poignant memorials, one of his most famous pieces of work is the Battle of Britain monument situated on the Victoria Embankment, London. For the reverse of this five-ounce coin he has chosen the image of a lone soldier, reminding us of the human cost of war. Each coin comes with thoughtfully designed packaging, where you can read about the story of the Armistice and the inspiration behind your coin’s moving design. The stories of war are brought to life through specially sourced images and accounts produced in conjunction with Imperial War Museums, who receive a donation from each coin purchased.
