Sorry – The competition is now closed.
The Masterpiece Poppy Coin
To mark the £500,000 milestone, 450 very special Poppy Coins have been authorised.
The Masterpiece coin features a single Royal British Legion Poppy struck on a 5oz Fine Silver Proof Coin. But it has been struck with massive pressure and incredible skill 5 times to create an ultra-high relief.
The Poppy literally comes out of the coin, raised a full 1.6mm above the surface of the coin.
This is NOT a cast piece. It is a fully struck proof coin, which means it has all of the detail, mirroring and frosting that you expect from a commemorative proof coin but with the ultra-high relief of a casting.
To complete the Masterpiece Coin, the Poppy has been expertly finished in poppy red with the black central button, exactly replicating the Poppy you and I wear with pride each year.
Presentation that befits your Masterpiece
And, as befits such a masterpiece, its presentation matches the coin’s impressiveness.
The luxurious wooden display case allows you to display your Masterpiece Poppy Coin to the best advantage, with its glass lid protecting the coin. Inside the box is space for your numbered Certificate of Authenticity hand-signed by Director General Charles Byrne, as well as the accompanying booklet that tells the story of the Masterpiece Poppy Coin from concept to final coin.
Just 450 2016 Masterpiece Silver 5oz Poppy Coins will ever be struck and just by answering a simple question you could be the winner of number 1.
