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.

To mark this Anniversary, the coins in this series have the title ‘We Will Remember Them’ and reflect the more poignant stories of World War I. Each coin also features a Poppy to remember those who lost their lives.

The first of the Falkland Islands coins features members of the Armed Forces (one in a wheelchair) in front of the Cross of Sacrifice with aircraft overhead. The other coin features the Royal Chelsea Hospital with a Chelsea Pensioner in the foreground.

Available in Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver, each precious metal coin has been carefully struck four times and feature frosted high relief sculpting against a mirror brilliant background. Each coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. The coins are also available with the Poppy on each coin produced in full colour.

We have order twice from Island stamps and both times they have the order packaged and shipped in a day or two. Awesome to deal with. Thanks.

When I received the wrong item with an order which I expect was my fault, the way the exchange was carried out was excellent, and couldn't be improved. I have always had exceptional service from I.S & C
