Own an incredible artistic tribute to the soldiers of the First World War

This commemorative medal has been issued by La Monnaie de Paris to pay tribute to the soldiers of the First World War.

Over the years the Mint have created some of the most exceptional coins and medals, and this issue is no exception.

The commemorative medal has been struck from 13oz (370g) of solid bronze with a diameter of over 3 inches (81mm) to an unparalleled antique finish.

The obverse design represents La Guerre Moderne – which means “The Modern War” - illustrating the technical innovations developed during the War.  The reverse depicts a map of the battlefront, showing how the front had stabilised at the end of 1917.

The incredible depth of engraving and striking creates a final piece that most other mints would never be able to achieve. The result is a stunning 3-dimensional piece, unlike any normal proof medal.

Just 1,917 have been authorised to be struck and we currently have 100 available for Westminster collectors.
