    Royal Mint coins to celebrate Frankenstein, the Armistice, Women's vote and RAF

    The moment of the long-awaited ceasefire is the subject for 2018. The design for the Armistice £2 coin features words from Wilfred Owen’s poem “Strange Meeting”

    The United Kingdom will make new coins this year to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein’’ as well as commemorate a century since women started gaining the right to vote. Designs on special two-pound coins will also honor the end of the First World War and the creation of the Royal Air Force in 1918, the U.K.’s Royal Mint said in a statement.
