To honour the 100th Anniversary of Armistice that ended the First World War, The Royal Mint released the 2018 First World War Armistice £2 Silver Proof in collaboration with Imperial War Museum. For many, 11 November 1918 was a day of reflection and mourning for the casualties of war, as well as a celebration for the armistice. At 11am, across Britain schools and workplaces closed for the day, bells, train whistles, car horns and sirens rang out, and impromptu street parties were held. Big Ben chimed for the first time in four years. The reverse of this coin features an emotive design by renowned textual artist Stephen Raw. At the centre of his engraving are the words ‘The truth untold, the pity of war’. These words are taken from a poem called ‘Strange Meeting’ by Wilfred Owen, one of the most famous solider poets of the First World War. Wilfred tragically lost his life in November 1918 at the Sambre-Oise Canal. Raw used soil taken from the region to construct his design in commemoration of the poet. Around the edge of this Two Pound is the inscription ‘WILFRED OWEN KILLED IN ACTION 4 NOVEMBER 1918’. The obverse features Jody Clark’s effigy of The Queen, the fifth official portrait which has been used on currency since 2015. This coin is one of a limited presentation of 5,000 coins, struck in 12.00 grams of .925 Sterling Silver with a fine gold plated outer rim. This £2 coin is offered in its original packaging from The Royal Mint with its numbered certificate of authenticity.
