Armistice Commemoration Box

Armistice box ipl packaging luxury packaging

On 11 November this year, thousands of people across the world gathered in capitals, beside monuments and in front of their leaders to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

IPL was commissioned by The SA Mint to design and produce a pack commemorating the historic peace agreement.

Designed to contain and display a collectible medal and Kruger Rand set, IPL developed a mahogany wood-veneered MDF box with matching custom made fitment created to commemorate the armistice between the Allies and their opponent, Germany, and to honour the bravery and sacrifice of those who served during World War I.

The box outer was decorated with electroform decal branding and IPL made use of a special printing process which allowed us to place a sepia photograph of the armistice signing on the outer lid.

To enhance the feeling of history and tradition and reflect an aged appearance, a special weathered-leather strap closure was used.  The box also features a felt-lined drawer hidden in its base that houses a certificate of authenticity.
