Each year, we remember the events of the Easter Rising, a conflict that saw the signing of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic and the ultimate creation of the Free State of Ireland just six years later. We also commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Irish War of Independence, and we reflect on those events that led to us achieving the freedom we have today, and the men that made it possible.

One of these men was Sir Roger Casement. Born on 1 September 1864, a diplomat and an Irish nationalist, Casement helped form the Irish Volunteers in 1913 and became a key figure in the Irish Republican Brotherhood. A year later, after Britain’s declaration of war against Germany, he went to the United States to organise support for the pro-independence cause. From there he travelled to Germany with the aim of raising a brigade among Irish-born prisoners of war and persuading the Germans to provide arms for an insurrection in Ireland against British rule.

In honour of this iconic figure in our nation’s great history, you can now own a beautifully crafted medal, expertly layered in pure 24-carat Gold as an everlasting tribute to one of the men who helped us gain our freedom.

Struck to Proof quality, the highest possible standard, this beautiful medal depicts a portrait of Sir Roger Casement on the reverse and the Anglo-Irish Treaty parchment impression featuring ‘Sworn to be free’ in Irish Gaelic, surrounded by Celtic knot and year the Irish Free State was established on the obverse.

With just 30,000 medals struck worldwide, I expect substantial demand for this poignant reminder of the actions of a man who gave his life for his country.
