WE WILL REMEMBER THEM: The largest battle of World War I fought on the Western Front, the Battle of the Somme took place between the Allied and French armies against the German Empire. It took place between 1st July and 18th November 1916 on both sides of upper reaches of the River Somme in France. Australian and New Zealand forces made a considerable contribution during the four month campaign and like their British Allies, suffered enormous casualties. The 1st, 2nd and 4th Australian Divisions suffered 24,000 casualties at Pozieres, with 6,741 dead. Poignantly the official war correspondent C.E.W. Bean described Pozieres as "more densely sown with Australian sacrifice than any other place on earth". New Zealand forces made a tremendous showing at Flers-Courcelette, helping to advance the Allied front line further into German-held territory. One hundred years on, this battle remains one of the worst in memory, with those who fought celebrated as heroes. Now, a unique commemorative has been released to remember those who valiantly fought in The Battle of the Somme.

This crown coin has been released to mark this important anniversary. Struck to a high specification, only 2,016 are available. Fully layered with pure 24-carat gold. The crown depicts men walking toward the battle before a tank, with the sun rising in the sky. The edition also showcases the individual limit number. An informative Certificate of Authenticity is included FREE of charge with each edition, which details the unique specification of your coin. This offer is likely to attract considerable interest, and not just from collectors. This is a coin of remarkable detail, quality and size, and now you have the opportunity to own one, but strong demand is expected so don't wait!
