I am happy to have such beautiful memorial coins commemorating the 1918 armistice. My great-uncle died at the Somme so I feel connected in a deep way with the events of that war.
well presented set, even the wife likes them
Very moving and appropriate for this centenary year.
I have become interested in the First World War and this set has reinforced this interest for me. As with a previous reviewer, I too had issues with broken or dislodged capsules but Westminster International replaced the set for me with no further problems. They were prompt in doing so and this is important.
This is a great acknowledgement of sacrifice!
