The red poppies of Flanders Fields have been much in evidence on coins issued to mark the centenaries of World War I events.

Lichtenstein’s Coin Invest Trust has now commemorated the poppy itself with a 45 mm, 1 oz .999 fine silver, red poppy-shaped $5.

The innovative coin was struck using CIT’s smartminting© technology.

It has been issued for the Cook Islands and has a mintage of 2,500.
