The bloodshed of World War I ended in 1918 at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. To mark the cessation of hostilities 100 years ago, The Perth Mint offers this carefully considered numismatic tribute honouring the courage and sacrifice of those who suffered the conflict’s unremitting brutality at Gallipoli, in the Middle East and on the Western Front.

The coin’s reverse portrays a dove which has for millennia symbolised ‘peace’. The bird is holding another poignant symbol in its beak. Red poppies were the first flowers to bloom in the devastated battlefields of Western Europe and soon became universally associated with the act of remembrance. The coin’s surface is ‘antiqued’, a special treatment intended to give it the appearance of an historical artefact.

This remarkable release is struck from 5oz of 99.99% pure silver, is housed in a classic textured grey display case, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity packaged in a delicately designed shipper.

With a maximum mintage of just 500, the coin represents an especially rare and highly desirable tribute.
