Own the Limited Edition Battle of the Somme Proof Coin for just £25

As a tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice during one of the most famous and terrible battles of the First World War, a brand new Proof £5 Coin has been issued for 2016.

Significantly, this is the only Proof £5 Coin commemorating the Battle of the Somme issued in support of the Legion available anywhere in the world.

Designed with the Somme battlefields in mind, the reverse features a masterfully printed and haunting poppy field with an engraved scene depicting soldiers going ‘over the top’ into battle. The design movingly combines the modern day imagery of remembrance, along with scenes that took place over 100 years ago.

Proof is the highest grade of finish found on collectable coins - produced using a specially prepared die which strikes the coin several times to create a high quality frosted and mirrored finish with enhanced definition.  140P EML

This new design is only to be found on the official range of Battle of the Somme Centenary coins issued in support of The Royal British Legion.

The coin comes presented in its own Presentation Case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

With an edition limit of just 4,950, it is likely that this coin will be extremely popular with collectors.

Secure your Battle of the Somme Proof £5 Coin today and own a lasting tribute to remember the fallen. Lest we forget.

By ordering the new £5 Proof Battle of the Somme Coin you’ll be donating £2.50 directly towards the Legion’s welfare work, providing financial, social and emotional support to all who have served and are currently serving in the British Armed Forces and their families.
