These beautiful gold coins commemorate the centenary of the Armistice in 1918.
Signed between France, Britain and Germany in a railway carriage in the Forest of Compiègne north of Paris, the Armistice implemented a ceasefire at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. The Treaty of Versailles, which formally ended the war, was then signed on 28 June 1919.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure gold each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
No more than 250 2oz gold coins will be released.
Featured on each coin’s reverse is a dove, a bird which has for millennia represented peace, holding in its beak a red poppy. Poppies were the first flowers to bloom in the devastated battlefields of Western Europe and soon became widely accepted as the symbol of remembrance. In the background is the word peace struck in different fonts, the inscription ‘1918 END of WORLD WAR I’ and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
Each coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date and the monetary denomination.
The 2oz gold coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
The coins are housed in a range of display cases, each within a themed shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
