2020 Plague Remembrance Coin
Dies made and coins struck by Magister Arion the Wanderer, Dragon’s Laire Mint.
This piece is struck in 3% Silver/97% Pewter Alloy.
Least we forget what an impact this thing has made on our lives and in the world.
It is hoped we shall look back on this when we hold the coin in our hands, and with relief note its passing.
