Every year on the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, the nation falls silent for two minutes. Ever since Remembrance Day began in 1919 as a way of honoring the sacrifices of the First World War, ceremonies have continued to take place at war memorials for almost a century. As conflicts continue around the world today, it is now marked to remember the dead of both the First and Second World Wars, as well as those who continue to risk their lives to protect our freedom and the values we hold.
Each year we are proud to release a coin created by one of our own designers for Remembrance Day. For 2017, the reverse design was created by Stephen Taylor, a member of The Royal Mint’s Graphic Design team. His realistic poppies feature color printing that highlights the vibrant red of the petals, and the design bears the poignant inscription "Silence speaks when words can not".
This is the first time that the Remembrance Day coin has been struck on an official UK coin. Featuring contemporary packaging and an accompanying booklet exploring the tradition of Remembrance Day, the range is endorsed by Imperial War Museums. A donation from every coin purchased will be made to the organization to support their valuable work.
