In 2018, to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, The London Mint Office, in official partnership with the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres, Belgium, released a remarkable commemorative coin paying tribute to all those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for king and country. These sacrifices should never be forgotten, and the nation will forever cherish their memory - we will remember them.

Struck to collector quality, the coin has been designed by acclaimed sculptor Paul Day. The design shows a scarred battlefield with a lone soldier, his head bowed in silent contemplation as he pays tribute to his fallen comrades. The remembrance emblems of the Allied Forces – the cornflower, the daisy and the poppy are also featured along with the inscription ‘At the going down of the sun’ taken from the famous wartime poem ‘For the Fallen’ by Laurence Binyon.
