New Coin! Remembrance Day 2011


Recommended Posts

The Remembrance Day 2011 geocoin samples have arrived!


The front of the coin lists all the major battles in which the Canadian Corps took part during the First World War. In the centre is a reproduction of the maple leaf that is carved onto every Canadian War Grave in Europe.




The back is a reproduction of a photo showing Canadian troops in the trenches of the Western Front. Around this are the last lines of "In Flanders Fields" by LtCol John McCrae.


"If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields."



I will be offering 5 different versions. They will all be available individually or (for slightly cheaper) as a set of 5.


The pre-sale will begin on Saturday September 17th and run for 10 days. The expected delivery date would be the last week of October.


Here are the different versions:



Antique Copper



Antique Bronze



Antique Silver



LE Black Nickel/Antique Gold



LE Gold/Antique Silver
