Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  5. Found it thanks to The Phantom Bear...

    Worthy of a gentle bump for idiots like myself who couldn't find the Remembrance Auction Threads...
     
  6. Is it just me or does that say 11-11-2011 on it?
     
  7. indeed it does
     
  8. Is that intentional?
     
  9. There is a bit of history to this which you will find elsewhere on Arrse, try looking for challenge coin
     
  10. I know about the concept of challenge coins, and that Arrse have comissioned a few, I'm just wondering why the year is wrong.
     
  11. Ltd Edition Poppy Coin - look in charities and welfare and get the full story
     
  12. I presumed that as the '1's matched then that is why it was chosen. Perhaps if you pm the authors they might be able to tell you better. I like the design and the run of numbers
     
  13. If you read why the original die was made you will see that it was for a 'concept' to be put to the mint for next year, hence the year represented next year.

    Rather than waste the die we chose to have some made to raise some dosh, people just bought them a year early!
     
  14. How do I pay?
