These beautiful silver coins commemorate the centenary of the Armistice in 1918.
Signed between France, Britain and Germany in a railway carriage in the Forest of Compiègne north of Paris, the Armistice implemented a ceasefire at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. The Treaty of Versailles, which formally ended the war, was then signed on 28 June 1919.
No more than 5,000 1oz silver silver coins will be released.
Featured on each coin’s reverse is a dove, a bird which has for millennia represented peace, holding in its beak a red poppy. Poppies were the first flowers to bloom in the devastated battlefields of Western Europe and soon became widely accepted as the symbol of remembrance.
The coins are housed in a display case, each within a themed shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity
