Passchendaele

The new £1 coin is to be introduced in 2017.

I hope the design will make some reference to the centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele July to November 1917 - a great tragedy and victory.

In case anyone is in any doubt about the seriousness of this anniversary 244,897 British men died in the battle.
