‘All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.’ - T. E. Lawrence

Coin Story
Thomas Edward Lawrence, CB, DSO (16th August 1888 19th May 1935), known as T. E. Lawrence, or ‘Lawrence of Arabia’, was a British Army officer renowned for his role in conflict within the Middle East during the First World War. The breadth and variety of his activities, and his ability to describe them vividly in writing, earned him international fame. The year commencing in August 2013 dates the 125th anniversary of his birth.

Reverse Design
This purely engraved coin commemorates the life and achievements of one of the greatest and most mysterious men of the 20th century. Focusing on the partially obscured face of this historical enigma, Lawrence is captured in the traditional Middle Eastern garb which made him a global media phenomenon of his day.

The folds in the cloth of the other side represent the endless rolling sand dunes of the desert which Lawrence called home and the fluidity of his own life.
A Sopwith Camel biplane is set against this Arabian background, symbolizing Lawrence’s great love of flying and the many years he served in the RAF. It was here where he was instrumental in bringing about key reforms such as the abolition of the death penalty for cowardice in battle, and the use of Pith helmets being abandoned by the air force in India.

Packaging
The T.E. Lawrence 1 oz 999 Pure Silver Coin is presented in an attractive dark wooden case with removable coin-holder insert. The insert can be positioned so the coin is displayed upright. The outer boxing displays a historical photographic image of T.E. Lawrence. Please click here to ask a question
