Gone but not forgotten
On the 11 November 1918 the guns fell silent on the Western Front. Gone but not forgotten, each year we stop to remember the fallen from the First World War and every subsequent conflict. In wearing a simple poppy, we honour unimaginable sacrifice and express our hope for future peace.
Double the thickness of the silver Proof issue, just 1,500 editions of this Piedfort coin are available to buy. Prestige pieces on account of the level of craftsmanship required to produce them, a Piedfort coin is issued in small quantities giving them a rarity prized among collectors.
Royal Mint coin designer Laura Clancy details a single poppy, a poignant reminder of lives cut tragically short. This UK £5 coin is presented complete with a booklet telling the stories behind our remembrance traditions.
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.
