Honouring the fallen
As the two great conflicts that defined the twentieth century slip from living memory, war memorials preserve their legacy, a roll call of the fallen that reminds us of the fragility of peace. On Remembrance Day, two minutes of respectful silence forms a bridge to the past. Gone but not forgotten, we will always remember them – those who gave so much for the freedoms we enjoy today.
This year’s tribute from The Royal Mint has been struck on a UK £5 coin. Royal Mint coin designer Laura Clancy details a single blood red poppy; a moving homage to those who never came home.
Just 3,500 of these silver Proof editions are available to buy, so it is likely to be popular with collectors now and in the future.
IWM records and tells the stories of those who have lived, fought and died in conflict since 1914. The Royal Mint will donate to IWM 2.5% of the recommended retail price of this product and your purchase ensures that these stories are heard.
