Pay tribute to the spirit of the Pals Battalions with this poignant £2 coin

Shoulder to shoulder, defending these islands

In 1914, tensions in South East Europe would spill over into war; a conflict that would engulf the rest of Europe, then the world. This was a new kind of warfare, fought on an industrial scale by land, sea and air. The tactics of the past were rendered obsolete by new technology and the sheer scale of the combat. The British Army needed to swell its ranks, so the call went out to enlist. To aid the recruitment drive, men were permitted to serve alongside those they knew in Pals Battalions - friends, neighbours and workmates serving side by side.

As we continue our five-year programme of commemoration , this poignant £2 coin by the team at creative agency Uniform is a respectful way to remember the camaraderie of those men and the unity and pride of the communities they volunteered to defend. It is created in association with Imperial War Museums, and every purchase includes a contribution to help fund their work. With this crisply-minted Brilliant Uncirculated edition in its richly detailed display folder, you can mark a poignant moment in military history, or add this superb coin to your First World War centenary collection.
