Layered in pure Silver, struck in stunning high relief and inset with a Swarovski® crystal
Beautifully crafted the coin's design evokes the neoclassic style, as seen on the medallic art of the war era, in particular, that of the Victory medal that was awarded to everyone who ventured into the theatre of battle between 1914-1918. Now, 100 years after the end of the First World War, this new coin shows a solemn representation of Victory as she reflects on the inscription from Binyon's 'Ode Of Remembrance – they shall grow not old'. The design is the work of renowned coin artist Joel Iskovitz – in his own words, "the underlying theme is Remembrance, featuring a vision of a compassionate, and at times, a mournful Victory, underscoring the enormous costs of the Great War."
