This year The Royal Mint's programme of commemoration, which tells the story of the First World War in coins, reaches 1916 when the war was at its midpoint and the Armistice was still two years away. As we reflect on the conflict 100 years on, The Royal Mint issues this five-ounce coin in recognition of the war poets, the bleak reality of the conditions they faced and the way they captured it with such eloquence.
There shall be in that rich earth a richer dust concealed.
