Introducing the 2020 5oz Silver Masterpiece Poppy Coin…

Featuring a 3-dimensional Poppy crafted purely from a legendary Spitfire!

Just 300 worldwide

Every year, on the 11th November, the nation falls silent to remember the fallen men and women from conflicts past and present.

This year, a breath-taking Masterpiece Coin has been issued in support of The Royal British Legion to pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

In one of the most sophisticated and moving examples of the excellence of modern minting, the 2020 Poppy Masterpiece is truly a work of art, worthy of its title. Here’s why…

Unparalleled Craftsmanship – A Rare Masterpiece

The 2020 Masterpiece Poppy coin showcases remarkable, top-secret craftsmanship in creating a fascinating coin that will go down in history as one of the most stunning tributes to our fallen heroes.

A single stylised Poppy inspired by The Royal British Legion Remembrance Poppies we wear each year sits at the heart of the coin, created from an actual piece of Spitfire which has been laser engraved with the aircraft serial number.

This 3-dimensional, poignant centrepiece sits against a backdrop of engraved poppies, reminding us of the magnitude of the sacrifices made by our service personnel past and present.

5 Ounces of PURE Silver

This Masterpiece coin has been struck from 5oz of fine 999/1000 silver to a flawless Proof finish. Proof coins have the highest grade of finish found on coins. They’re produced using a specially prepared die and struck several times to ensure enhanced definition

What’s more, the Pure Silver coin has been expertly plated in 24 carat gold, providing a powerful contrast to the colour of the Poppy-shaped Spitfire at the forefront of the design.

With the hugely impressive weight of 5oz you’ll be able to both see and feel the quality of this coin in your hand.

Issued in support of The Royal British Legion

The 2020 Poppy Masterpiece coin is the pride and joy of our collection. What’s more, the coin has been produced in partnership with and fully approved by The Royal British Legion. By ordering this coin, you'll also be directly supporting The Royal British Legion who provide financial, social and life-long support to the Armed Forces community.

Limited Edition – 300 worldwide

Housed within a deluxe presentation case and complete with a masterpiece brochure and hand-numbered certificate of authenticity, the piece is finished to perfection.

Due to the complexity of the strike and the rarity of the Spitfire metal, just 300 Masterpiece coins have been struck worldwide and we have just 5 available.

In the year that marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day, VJ Day and the end of the Second World War, there has never been a better time to own a historic military commemorative that will undoubtedly prove to be one of the finest of all time.

If you want to be one of the 300 people in the world to own this historic Masterpiece Poppy Coin, crafted from a genuine WWII veteran Spitfire, I urge you to add it to your cart today!
