About the Coin

The most important anniversaries deserve Britain’s tribute. The First World War Outbreak Gold Proof Five-Ounce Coin forms part of The Royal Mint’s five-year programme for the UK’s coins – with Britain’s largest coins, reserved for the most important anniversaries and events, the ultimate commemoration. In his poignant design John Bergdahl recalls the first wave of troops departing Britain for Europe, watched over by Britannia with the British lion at her side. She is the guardian of our shores, a symbol of the patriotism and apprehension that surrounded those first days of war. All these beautiful details on the coin’s 65mm diameter reverse are enhanced by The Royal Mint’s Proof finish, the pinnacle of minting skill, adding to the glory of fine gold.

Each coin is presented in its own handsome case and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity to confirm its low mintage of just 110. Your coin is accompanied by a fascinating booklet that reveals the story of pre-war Britain, the country at the outbreak of war, the first events in the long battle to come and the inspiration behind the designs. Whether you wish to honour those who fought or you have an interest in military history, the Five-Ounce coin is the perfect choice.
