This year marks 100 years since Armistice, and the end of The First World War in which countless brave men and women lost their lives. But most poignantly the final year of the centenary commemorations.
To mark this incredibly important anniversary year, today you have the chance to become one of just a handful of collectors to own the 2018 Masterpiece Poppy Coin released in support of The Royal British Legion.
100 Poppies – 100 Years
A single stylised The Royal British Legion poppy, created from First World War One brass artillery shells, proudly sits on top of your coin, resulting in an exceptional 3 dimensional effect. Upon closer inspection your coin features a further 99 engraved poppies, making 100 poppies in total to reflect the centenary anniversary.
British artillery shell fuses
The golden coloured poppy that adorn the Masterpiece Coins are made of inert brass British artillery shell fuses recovered from the First World War battlefield of the Somme.
Each poppy has a central disc of red enamel and, to add even more meaning, this enamel is mixed with earth recovered from several locations along the British Front Line of the Somme and Passchendaele areas in Belgium. Thereby, not only are the poppies made of actual First World War metal, but they also possess the very essence of the battlefield which the brave soldiers fought and died upon, and that many still lie at peace beneath.
Presentation that befits your masterpiece
And, as befits such a masterpiece, its presentation matches the coin's impressiveness.
The luxurious wooden display case allows you to display your Masterpiece Poppy Coin to the best advantage, with its glass lid protecting the coin. Inside the box is space for the numbered Certificate of Authenticity, as well as the accompanying booklet that tells the story of the Masterpiece Poppy Coin from concept to final coin.
