Design

At Rest is the final painting in the Unknown Warrior series (2005) and was painted in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior. This powerful painting depicts an officer holding his young daughter, who clasps a poppy and looks inquisitively at the tomb. The RSA has a long connection with the National War memorial, and played an important role in the return of the Unknown Warrior. You can learn more about this important story in the numbered certificate that accompanies each coin.
