In 2014 The Royal Mint began a program of commemoration to mark the centenary of the First World War. The coins in the collection tell the story of the conflict from "Outbreak to Armistice", in a story that, like the "Great War", will last for five years.
A series of five-ounce coins takes us from the start of the war in 1914 to its end in 1918. This year’s release is the fourth of the coins and looks back to the events of 1917, when vital progress was made in the face of adversity during a brutal war.
As we reflect on the conflict 100 years on, The Royal Mint issues this five-ounce coin reminding us of the true cost of war, the terrible losses and the sacrifices made. The coin features an original design by renowned sculptor Philip Jackson CVO DL MA FRBS, inspired by the poetry of Rudyard Kipling and the individual sacrifices that were made to end the war.
