A simple design shows war and peace are mix in fact but not opposite. People should remember how bad the war they ever did, then they know how great the peace actually is.
I just received this today. It looks nice.
UK 2020 End of WWII £5 BU Pack
Own the BRAND NEW End of WWII £5 BU Pack
The Royal Mint has released a BRAND NEW commemorative £5 to mark what’s arguably the most significant military anniversary of recent years – the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
VE Day marked the end of the war in Europe, but fighting continued for three months until Japan were forced to surrender and the war that had gripped the whole world was finally brought to an end.
75 years since the end of the Second World War, this new coin pays tribute to the men and women who fought and died in this world-changing conflict.
The poignant design by Matt Dent and Christian Davies is inspired by war memorial inscriptions. The combination of ‘WAR’ and ‘PEACE’ captures the magnitude of events and allows us to reflect on the immense struggle and sacrifice to achieve lasting peace.
This coin has been struck to Brilliant Uncirculated quality, so you know it will be free from any of the marks or blemishes you would find on coins in your change. It comes beautifully presented in bespoke Royal Mint packaging and is available at the Royal Mint issue price of JUST £13 (+p&p).
