Tristan da Cunha, Remembrance Day £5 (3) 2016 Copper Plated in Gold or silver Coin Collection

£59.00
In 1919, George V initiated a tradition of remembrance in tribute to the millions of soldiers who had lost their lives fighting in the 'Great War'. Commemorations are held each November when Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is joined by members of the Royal Family, armed, forces, and war veterans at the Cenotaph in Whitehall where she lays the first poppy wreath. London's war memorial was unveiled in 1920 as a tribute to the fallen, and the first Remembrance Day poppy was sold in Britain in 1921. The poppy has now become a worldwide symbol of remembrance and hope, and in 2014, more than 800,000 ceramic poppies were put on display around the Tower of London to mark the centenary of the start of WW1.
