On behalf of Ascension Island, Pobjoy Mint is pleased to announce the release of an unmissable new set of coins commemorating the centenary of the outbreak of World War I.

One of the most defining events of the 20th century, ‘The Great War’ as it is often known, remains a shocking reminder of the horrors of warfare. Marking this incredible anniversary, Pobjoy Mint’s highly collectable coins have the title ‘We Will Remember Them’ and reflect the more poignant stories of World War I.  Each coin also features a Poppy as a symbol of remembrance – a tradition connected with WWI.

This set consists of two beautiful WW1 commemorative coins, both in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel. The first depicts the Allies of World War I and Germany signing the Armistice for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front at Compiègne, France, whilst the second features the cemetery at the Somme dedicated to those who fell in ‘The War To End All Wars’. 

Available in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver, each precious metal coin has been carefully struck four times to create the famous Pobjoy Proof finish and features frosted high relief sculpting against a mirror brilliant background.  As an Act of Remembrance for this Centenary, the coin set is also available in a special edition with the poppy produced in full colour.

The obverse of the coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. Ian Rank-Broadley is one of the foremost sculptors working today. His effigy of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II has appeared on all UK coinage since 1998 and the Pobjoy Mint has exclusive use of the ‘uncouped’ effigy that appears on the obverse of these collector’s coins.
