2018 WWI Armistice CERTIFIED BU £2

Armistice marked the end of the First World War and the victory of the allies on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month 1918.

The 11th of November has since become a yearly event for people to celebrate and honour all servicemen and women who have fought for their country.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of this significant victory, The Royal Mint has issued a 2018 £2 coin. This also completes the set of commemorative £2 coins that The Royal Mint has released from 2014-2018 to mark the centenary of the First World War.

The reverse was designed by Stephen Raw and features the words ‘The truth untold, the pity of war’, from the Wilfred Owen poem Strange Meeting. The words stand out of a mud-like background in the centre of the £2.

The edge inscription reads 'WILFRED OWEN KILLED IN ACTION 4 NOV 1918'.

The Obverse features the fifth portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.

Your £2 coin is in superior Brilliant Uncirculated quality and is protectively encapsulated to preserve in a collection for generations to come.
