Each year individuals come together in quiet reflection to remember those who lost their lives in the service of their country, and those who are still affected by conflict today. Each year The Royal Mint is proud to play its part by releasing a coin for remembrance to mark the poignant moment for the nation.
Royal Mint coin designer Thomas Docherty chose the poppy wreath as a symbol of the way that nations remember and commemorate the fallen. His design features the wreath that lies at The Royal Mint’s war memorial at its home in Llantrisant, South Wales. Thomas visited the commonwealth graveyard in Cathays Cemetery, Cardiff to research memorial designs. “This wreath is not only personal to us at The Royal Mint but also reflects the ‘everyman’ we all commemorate on Remembrance Day; from the wreath-layers to the poppy wearers all over our country. I portrayed the wreath from a low angle to give it a feeling of pride. I wanted to paint the colors of the poppies boldly and vibrantly, hopefully emphasizing that the poppy is a symbol of remembrance, but also one of hope for the future.”
