Armistice Remembrance Day Coin Box

Commemorating the 11th November 1918, the limited-edition Armistice box marks 100 years since World War One where the warring parties formally agreed to cease fighting on the Western Front. The set contains either the new gold or silver £5 coins commissioned by Royal Mint, along with five original World War 1 newspapers . The box set pays homage to those who fought and died; a total of 17million, including the fallen, the unknown soldiers and those whose names shall live on in remembrance.

  • The official World War 1 newspaper Armistice set
  • Choose from the Royal Mint gold coin set or the Royal Mint Silver coin set
  • Presented in a poppy-red, real Hyde leather gift box (45cmx 35cm x 13cm)
  • Handcrafted with blind and foil embossing, in the MacDonald Gill typeface
  • Includes five rare, original World War 1 newspapers from each year of the war

For many countries, the war is signified by the poppy; one of the only plants to grow on the otherwise barren battlefields. The box itself is handbound in poppy-red leather. Housed inside the box is a tray top securely holding your chosen remembrance coin and the tray can be removed to reveal five rare, original newspapers for each year of the war. The entire box also features The Ode of Remembrance interwoven on the lid and throughout the design of the box, handcrafted with blind and foil embossing.

The Wreath of Remembrance Day Coins

The Wreath of Remembrance coins are designed to mirror the memorial wreaths laid at the cenotaph. The date of the Armistice and the phrase ‘Lest We Forget’ are inscribed on the coins, written in the same MacDonald Gill typeface used on all war graves and the edge of the coins are engraved with ‘Brave Heroes Tell Time’s Open Wound Is War’.

The £5 Royal Mint Gold Coin

The level of craftmanship required to produce the 22 carat £5 Rose Gold coin is breath-taking. The coin is finished to Proof standard, with only 50 coins minted as part of the limited-edition set.

The £5 Royal Mint Silver Coin

A fine piece amongst collectors, the £5 Royal Mint Silver coin is struck in 925 sterling silver and finished to Proof standard. Only 300 coins have been minted as part of this limited-edition set.
