Huge numbers of posters were produced during World War I to satisfy a wide variety of vital communication needs. Positioned around stations, hotels and other busy locations, these bold and often remarkable works of art encouraged the public to enlist, donate gifts for the troops and contribute financially to the war effort.
Evocative reminders of how the nation rallied on the home front, three memorable First World War posters are captured in superb colour on the rectangle-shaped silver coins in this special collector pack.
