Remembering the Fallen - Honouring the Armistice

In 2014, The Royal Mint began a five-year programme to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. Five artists were carefully chosen to tell the story of different aspects of the conflict and its impact at home and abroad – technology, culture, battles, heroes and the contribution of the armed forces. As we approach Remembrance Day and the 100th anniversary of the end of the ‘great war’ it is time to mark this historic anniversary for the nation with the final set of coins in the series.

Just 600 sets of these last six £5 coins have been struck in silver– essential to complete your collection (and completely sold out in every other year). The emotive designs, by series artists David Lawrence, David Cornell, Edwina Ellis, John Bergdahl and David Rowlands, are very different, but together they honour the sacrifices made by so many. Unique to this final set, five of the coins in the set are finished with edge inscriptions by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, taken from a poem specially commissioned by The Royal Mint. The Dove of Peace coin brings the commemoration to a close with an inscription symbolising the Armistice.
