Description of obverse and reverse The obverse of the coin evokes the civilian side of the December 1915. A woman and her children are decorating a Christmas tree. The little girl reads a letter written by her father from the front. At the bottom of the coin, the poppy and the cornflower, respective symbols of veterans of the Commonwealth and of France. Reverse: following the obverse, the reverse starts around the Christmas tree! On the front, German, British and French soldiers are gathering around this strong symbol of Christmas. They all got out of the trenches and fraternise with the enemy. It is called Christmas Truce.
A brief annotation This series shows the role played both by men and women during this conflict. This year, the link is made by the Christmas events. The soldiers in the front live in the trenches, and the civilian world suffers. Women replace the lack of labour; war godmothers maintain the morale and nurses look after the wounded. In these harsh conditions in the trenches, German, British & French will fraternise in December 1915, getting out of the trenches. It is the Christmas Truce. In the meantime on the civilian side, families are living a particular Christmas, far from husbands, sons or friends.
