The 2014 Centenary of World War I Cupro Nickel Two Coin Colour Set Coin Quality

In June 1914, a Serbian nationalist assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in Sarajevo.  An intensification of threats and deployment orders followed the incident which led to the outbreak of World War I, which pitted Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire (the Central Powers) against Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy and Japan, later joined by the USA (the Allied Powers). The four years of the Great War (as it was then known) saw unprecedented levels of carnage and destruction. By the time World War I ended, more than 9 million soldiers had been killed and 21 million wounded.

The first coin from the Ascension Islands features the Signing of the Armistice between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I; the second design shows a cemetery at the Somme dedicated to those who fell in World War I.
