THE ARMY 2016 £2 TWO POUND GOLD PROOF COIN BOX AND COA

£1,099.95

Description

In 2016 the Royal Mint issued this Gold Proof coin, in commemoration of the Great War of 1914-1918, the First World War. This coin is the third of the series.  After Lord Kitchener’s call to arms, the response was astonishing, with almost the whole country swept by patriotic fervour.

Team mates, friends, neighbours and colleagues were permitted to serve side by side in ‘Pals Battalions’, proudly defending their country.

The result of the hugely successful recruitment drive, had devastating consequences for communities

from which the ‘Pals Battalions’ were recruited.

The coin depicts these battalions, friends, neighbours and colleagues, who stood ‘Shoulder to Shoulder’ defending Britain, many of who did not return from battle. ‘Lest we forget’ the fallen who paid the ultimate sacrifice, in service of their country.

This coin is the only official UK coin to commemorate the role of the Army, in the First World War.

The coin comes complete with numbered Certificate of Authenticity and information booklet
