Description

Remembrance Day is an annual day of reflection where our collective thoughts turn to those who sacrificed so much to ensure the freedom of future generations. In addition to the typical Armistice tributes, 2020 also marks a very special anniversary – the historic centenary of the burial of the Unknown Warrior. In 1920, the decision was made to honour all those who died during the First World War with the ceremonial burial of an anonymous fallen hero. The unnamed soldier would symbolise all those who had made the journey to the front lines and never returned home. As we mark the 100th anniversary of this poignant national event, The Royal Mint commemorates this momentous occasion by honouring the Unknown Warrior on an official UK coin for the first time. Find out more about the coin’s design and the fascinating story that inspired it.
