First World War Armistice
Wednesday, 4 April 2018 | Gareth
The moment the guns fell silent and the First World War drew to a close was one of the most significant events in global history. In 2018, we mark the centenary of the Armistice, the longed-for moment that brought the fighting to an end.
To mark the centenary of the Armistice, Stephen Raw, an internationally renowned textual artist, has created a design for this ₤2 coin reminding us all of the truth and pity of war. This limited edition sterling silver coin has been finished to the finest Proof standard and comes with a booklet filled with imagery and information sourced with the help of Imperial War Museums.
