There are few place names in history which evoke the emotion of the Somme. The loss of life during this epic battle placed into clear context how futile war can be. By the end of the four month campaign, little was achieved except a greater appreciation of the courage of men who fought for their country. We are particularly indebted to the ANZACs who served at the Somme. While we think of Gallipoli as our defining moment in WWI, it is the Western Front and the Somme in which Australia and New Zealand made our greatest contribution to the war effort and sustained our heaviest losses. Today, in the 105th anniversary of the battle, it is time to reflect on the courage of men who experienced war as no generation ever had with the ‘Battle of the Somme Five Crown Coin’, an exclusive presentation from The Bradford Exchange.

The centrepiece of the coin design is an artwork from the portfolio of Robert Todonai, one of Australia’s finest portraitist. His vision is filled with the raw courage of men in war who are willing to sacrifice all for their mates. The portrait of two diggers- one wounded, and one attempting a rescue - is charged with the raw emotion of men at war. Particularly moving is a verse from noted British poet Siegfried Sassoon. His words “Have you forgotten yet?...Look up and swear by the slain of the war that you’ll never forget” beg the reader to always remember the fallen. Adjacent to the scene is a richly detailed metallic casting of the Australian 1st Division Memorial at Pozieres. Layered in 24-carat gold and struck to a high specification, only 1,916 numbered issues will ever be minted. This coin measures at 65mm in diameter and weighing 110 grams. Each coin is individually numbered, meaning no two are the same. Each coin accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and a prestigious presentation case, which is supplied free of charge. Strong demand is expected, so don’t miss out! Order yours today!
