The coin is entitled The Last Post which is a bugle or trumpet call used at Commonwealth military funerals and ceremonies commemorating those who have been killed in war.  Originally the Last Post merely signalled that the final sentry post had been inspected and the camp was secure for the night.  In addition, the Last Post had another function and at the close of a day of battle it signalled to those who were still out and wounded or separated that the fighting was done, and to follow the sound of the call to find safety and rest.

The coin shows a bugler sounding the Last Post in front of a group of soldiers.  Their camp can be seen in the background with the flag at half-mast and Poppies are shown in the foreground in remembrance of those who lost their lives.  This stunning coin is also available with the poppies beautifully coloured as a reminder of the number of people who did not return from this war.
