  • Designed by the British sculptor and medallist Edward Carter Preston, the Memorial Plaque was issued to the next-of-kin of all British and Empire service personnel who were killed as a result of the Great War. The plaques, about 4.75 inches (120 mm) in diameter, were cast in bronze, and came to be known as the "Dead Man’s Penny", because of the similarity in appearance to the much smaller penny coin. 1,355,000 plaques were issued, which used a total of 450 tons of bronze, and continued to be issued into the 1930s.
