A century after the Armistice was signed, bringing five years of terrible conflict to an end, The Royal Mint has struck a £2 coin as a tribute to the end of war. Every year we remember the fallen, a tradition that began just after the First World War, but this centenary, so much more than a moment in history, calls for a lasting tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

This official UK £2 coin features a design by artist Stephen Raw. He was inspired by Wilfred Owen, the famous war poet, who died in the conflict. The design features an inscription taken from Owen’s poem, ‘Strange Meeting’. It was modelled in clay the artist took from the Sambre-Oise Canal where Owen was killed in 1918.

This Brilliant Uncirculated edition is presented in a display folder that is filled with imagery and information that was sourced with the help of Imperial War Museums.
