Last year marked one of the most important events in Irish history, the 80th Anniversary of the end of the Irish Free State and the creation of the New State of Ireland. To mark the anniversary of this momentous event, The Dublin Mint Office is honoured to reveal the limited edition Michael Collins 80th Anniversary Commemorative Medal.

Proudly displaying a portrait of the iconic Michael Collins, hailed as the founder of the Irish Free State, the medal marks this momentous anniversary.

Layered in pure 24 carat gold and struck in the very best proof quality – limited to just 30,000 worldwide!

The commemorative depicts Michael Collins alongside the GPO, which served as the headquarters for the uprising. The reverse features the words 'sworn to be free' in Gaelic and English, taken from 'Amhrán na bhFiann' ('A Soldier's Song'). This symbolises the free and independent Ireland which ultimately Michael Collins fought so hard to create.

The limited edition Medal is available exclusively from The Dublin Mint Office, and is only available to customers within the Republic of Ireland.
