War poet coins it in
A FAMOUS war poem was the inspiration for the 2017 Remembrance Day coin.
Royal Mint graphic designer Stephen Taylor was inspired by John McCrae’s In Flanders Fields when he created the commemorative £5.
A donation from every purchase will go to the Imperial War Museums.
Mr Taylor said: “I chose poppies with a realistic, wildflower quality, echoing the flowers John McCrae would have seen growing when he wrote the poem.”
