Made to Honour Those That Served
During the First and Second World Wars, people from the Commonwealth answered the United Kingdom’s call, serving with distinction on land, at sea and in the air. This year’s Remembrance Day coin honours their contribution and pays tribute to those who worked, fought and died for the Allied cause thousands of miles from home.
Developed in collaboration with https://www.iwm.org.uk/ (IWM), The Remembrance Day 2021 UK £5 Coin features a reverse design created by the acclaimed artist Gary Breeze. Alongside symbolic red poppies, the coin carries an inscription from the famous fourth stanza of Laurence Binyon’s enduring poem ‘For the Fallen’,a tribute to those who died during the First World War.
Available in silver Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated editions, the range also includes a prestigious silver Proof Piedfort edition. Together, these coins provide a poignant tribute to all who served in both world wars.
