"Every year since 1919, on the second Sunday of the 11th month, at the 11th hour, the nation falls silent for two minutes to pay their respects to the brave men and women who have lost their lives in conflict around the world, and for those who continue to safeguard our freedom."

Remembrance Day first began as ‘Armistice Day’ in Great Britain on the 11th November 1919, in commemoration of the one-year anniversary of the peace agreement that ended the First World War.

After the conclusion of WWII in 1945, the British government wanted to honor those who fought in the World Wars and decided to replace Armistice Day with a new Sunday observance, which thereafter was known as Remembrance Sunday.

The design features an inscription of the 4th stanza of Laurence Binyon’s famous poem, ‘For the Fallen’. It is one of the most widely quoted poems from the First World War and has since been claimed as a tribute to all casualties of war. The poignant design features a special incised design with marks to replicate the effect of a war memorial.

The design also has selective color printing to highlight the red poppies – the symbol of both Remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.
