Signed on ‘the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month’, this 2018 United Kingdom £2 coin commemorates the centenary of the First World War Armistice.
The reverse design by Stephen Raw features the words ‘The truth untold, the pity of war’, from the Wilfred Owen poem Strange Meeting. The edge inscription reads 'WILFRED OWEN KILLED IN ACTION 4 NOV 1918'.
***Limited Edition of just 5,000 coins***
Surprisingly for such an important issue, the edition limit has been set at just 5,000 coins worldwide.
To put that 5,000 coin edition limit into perspective for you, that’s 2,500 LESS than the Silver Proof £2 coin issued for the RAF centenary.
As a result, we have very, very limited stock remaining.
