First World War UK £2 Packaging

Packaging project for the 100th Anniversary of the First World War UK £2 coin - the first in a 4 year programme to commemorate the horrors, victories and pay respect to the millions of soldiers who lost their lives serving their country. Available in 4 metal versions from the everyday collectors Brilliant Uncirculated version up to the premium gold version the coin design used the iconic image of Lord Kitchener to recruit troops to fight in a war which "would end by Christmas" yet lasted for a total of 4 years. The content of the booklet and fold-out poster and info-graphic was presented in a retrospective and nostalgic style with a typewriter-esque typeface and aged textures.
