The British Army – shoulder to shoulder defending these islands

Camaraderie and community

As Britain mobilised for war in 1914, the call went out to enlist. Men would be permitted to serve shoulder to shoulder with their friends, neighbours and workmates in Pals Battalions. They were the pride of their town or city, marching side by side in defence of their country. This concept was a recruitment masterstroke – hundreds of thousands of men rushed to sign up for king and country. A long period of training followed, before their fateful encounter at the Battle of the Somme exactly 100 years ago, when the British Army sustained its heaviest-ever losses in a 24-hour period.

As we honour the centenary of the First World War, the silver Piedfort is a statement worth making. Double-weighted for extra gravitas and impact, it is a splendid £2 coin and a respectful tribute to the camaraderie of those men who signed up, and the unity and pride of the communities they volunteered to defend. History and military enthusiasts and collectors alike will appreciate this magnificent and moving coin, destined to take pride of place in any serious collection.
