"The War to End All Wars" & the Technology of Death
The flagship of the British Grand Fleet, the dreadnought HMS Iron Duke, as she appeared at the Battle of Jutland. In President Woodrow Wilson's famous words, the First World War was "the war to end all wars," or such was the hope of a ravaged Europe in 1918. Never before in human history had science and technology been harnessed to such an extent in the service of Death. Never before had war been waged simultaneously in the skies, on the earth, and below the waves. Never before had the world seen the ruinous destruction wrought by airplanes, tanks and submarines. Never before had it witnessed the desolation of trench warfare - the deafening artillery fire, sweeping machine guns mowing down rows of soldiers, and lethal poison gases.

Over 65 million soldiers from around the world served their countries in battle. Historians estimate that up to 10 million lost their lives, while 20 million others were wounded. Today, as the world pays tribute to the last surviving veterans of this terrible conflict, these significant coins will forever honor the legacy of all who fought for freedom.
