Product Information

 

This truly extraordinary coin pays homage to one of the best known poems about World War I In Flanders Field. The perfectly minted coin depicts a gravestone in a field of poppies with the first verse of In Flanders Fields.

In Flanders Fields was written by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae as a heartfelt tribute to his friend and fellow Canadian Alexis Helmer, who was killed during battle in the area known as Flanders in Belgium. Today In Flanders Fields is recited at ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day commemorations. The first verse is particularly moving and is often featured on tombstones and memorials.

Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Gold

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality.

Emotive First World War High Relief Design

The coin’s reverse depicts a gravestone in a field of poppies with the first verse of In Flanders Fields etched across it and the date 1918-2018. The design includes a helmet, boots and four larks, the birds referenced in the poem as well as The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Edged lettering features around the coins rim with the words "PRIDE - RESPECT - GRATITUDE". The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date, and the monetary denomination are shown on the coin’s obverse.

Limited Mintage

The Perth Mint will release no more than 100 of In Flanders Fields 2018 2oz Gold Proof High Relief Coin from The Perth Mint.

Themed Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate

Each coin is presented in a black and red themed presentation case with the words ‘Pride’, ‘Respect’, and ‘Gratitude’ inscribed on the outside of the case, within an illustrated shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
