As time marches on, we move further and further away from the devastating events of the First World War. Our Remembrance ceremonies are based on the experiences of those who served and witnessed firsthand the courage of comrades who gave their lives for freedom. In the centenary of the end of WWI, we announce the creation of a new five crowns which unites these revered expressions of honour in an edition that will inspire us to continue remembering those who served. Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II has given her support to this tribute and to the tradition of remembrance which lies at the heart of Commonwealth nations. Only 1,918 “Ode of Remembrance Five Crowns” will be struck, available on a worldwide basis, with the first 300 minted on the 11th November centenart. This rare and historically valued coin is exclusive to and only available from The Bradford Exchange.

A compelling expression of sacrifice in war, the five crowns features the winged figure Victory cradling a dying soldier. The fine detail in the coin is truly extraordinary. From her richly textured feathered wings, to her stoic expression, to the wan appearance of the soldier, this is an image which lives long in the heart and mind. McCrae’s poppies flourish once more in the eternity of Flanders Fields where crosses mark the graves of those who will never be forgotten. Victory, the centrepiece of the original Victory Medal, stares longingly at Laurance Binyon’s verse “They Shall Grow Not Old,” a reminder to us all to pause and reflect on the sacrifice and the courage of the fallen. Substantial is the only way to describe this coin. At 65mm in diameter and weighing 110 grams, coins of such proportions are struck to mark occasions of great importance. Minted to Proof standards, the highest possible quality, it is entirely layered with pure 24-carat gold and with the genuine Swarovski “ruby” crystal, it is a coin that is simply without parallel. This auspicious subset of coins will be acknowledged in the Certificate of Authenticity confirming their elite status within the edition of just 1,918. Comes in a deluxe presentation case! High demand is expected so don’t delay, order yours now!
