Engeland serie WWI

Bericht door Stephan O » 05 jun 2014, 12:27

Engeland komt ook met herdenkingsmunten aangaande 'The Great War'.
COINWeek schreef: As the world prepares to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, The Royal Mint has begun a programme of commemoration that will continue over the next five years, telling the emotive story of the journey from outbreak to armistice through a series of United Kingdom £5 coins, arranged in six-coin sets.

For 2014 the six-coin set includes a coin honouring The British Expeditionary Force by John Bergdahl. John’s design captures the optimism of the first troops departing for France, an optimism that gains poignancy with hindsight. Military artist David Rowlands created the Home Front coin, which depicts a lone figure at work in the fields. It honours the role of women, who worked hard to fill jobs vacated by men. David Rowlands also created the coin that celebrates the Royal Navy, depicting a gun drill at sea.

David Cornell honours Walter Tull – the first black officer in Britain’s armed forces. His design shows troops going ‘over the top’ and features the poppy, a symbol of remembrance. David Lawrence’s coin explores the role of Propaganda in the war, the posters shown based on actual First World War designs.

The set include coins exploring the impact of war on technological developments by Edwina Ellis, starting with the 2014 coin featuring the Howitzer gun. Edwina was interested by the intricate details of this devastating technology, and also the human story.

This six coin set is the second issue in a programme of commemorative coins that will be released by the Royal Mint to mark the centenary of the First World War. It follows the launch of the Outbreak 2014 UK £2 coin bearing sculptor John Bergdahl’s powerful likeness of the instantly recognisable call to arms by Lord Kitchener.

About the Coin

Though many posters encouraged the men of Britain to enlist, the image of Kitchener has since come to stand for the call to fight for King and country that saw men respond in their thousands. It is to this instantly recognisable image that the experienced artist John Bergdahl turned to create his stirring design: ‘Your country needs you’.

Perhaps you wish to honour someone in your family who played their part, or pay your respects as the nation remembers. You will want to secure one of these Outbreak 2014 UK £2 Silver Proof Piedfort coins – produced by The Royal Mint, as were the medals presented to those who fought so long ago. Your coin is presented in luxury befitting its status – for Piedfort coins are highly sought after – with a Certificate of Authenticity, handsome display case and a fascinating booklet exploring the country at the outbreak of war, Kitchener’s campaign and the men who volunteered to fight with Britain from across the Commonwealth.

In 1914 Lord Kitchener was appointed to mastermind a recruitment campaign that would go on to create one of the largest volunteer armies ever known in Britain. The reverse of your coin was designed by John Bergdahl, creator of the coins struck to celebrate the christening of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge. He was inspired by Kitchener’s persuasive image, which perfectly reflects the sense of optimism that was shared in those first days of the First World War, an optimism that today can also be viewed with sadness.

Your coin’s edge inscription reads, ‘The lamps are going out all over Europe,’ recalling the words of Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey on the eve of war. Although no veteran who lived through the First World War is here today to receive the thanks of a grateful nation, a full century later Britain remembers, and marks, this important anniversary.
