Product Description

Canada. Newfoundland. Great Britain. France. Four staunch allies, one last push.  Commemorate the finals days of World War I on this one troy ounce pure silver military proof, beautifully enhanced with 24-karat gold!

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of First World War, Talisman Coins is proud to bring you the military-themed World War I Allied Forces Series! Each one troy ounce, pure silver proof coin remembers a specific action fought by one of the Allies (Canada, Newfoundland, France and Great Britain)! Each coin features 24-karat gold plating and the wartime monarch, King George V, too!

In 1918, the Allies launched the offensive that led to an armistice which ultimately brought an end to the war. Even in the last days of the First World War, Allied forces would find strength in unity. The First World War: Allies series reflects on the collaborative efforts of a republic, an empire and two of her dominions - four of the many allies bound by duty and heroism. Each coin features a highly detailed engraved vignette that shows a different side of the war, paired with a gold-plated insignia that is the embodiment of each participant’s sacrifices and courage in a combat that forever changed the world and led to the even larger global conflagration known as World War II.

The Allies: Great Britain

When Great Britain went to war in 1914, so did we. Australia, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Canada, Newfoundland, and many more — the dominions and colonies of the British Empire answered the call of duty throughout the four‐year conflict, adding more than two and a half million men to the British armed forces fighting at sea, in the skies, and on land.

From the soldiers in the trenches to the nurses near the front lines, risking one's life to save another is the very definition of heroism. On this coin, the gold‐plated General Service button is paired with a moving depiction of one hero tending to another: one of the thousands of nurses who risked their lives to care for those who fought at the front.

The Design
First World War Battlefront Reverse - King George V Gold-PlatedDesigned by Canadian artist Pandora Young, your coin depicts a field hospital located near the front during the First World War. While the pointed peaks of medical tents can be seen in the background, the presence of several stretcher‐bearers and other personnel suggest a battle is underway and casualties are arriving from the front lines. Special finishes place the focus on the British nurse in the foreground, whose quick movements reflect a sense of urgency; keeping pace with the stretcher‐bearers, her gaze is fixed on the wounded soldier as she quickly assesses his condition while providing words of comfort. The engraved image is paired with the gold‐plated General Service button.

The selectively gold‐plated reverse features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. Mackennal.
