About This Design
In 2014 this coin marked the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War and was the first coin in a five-year series, on a journey from ‘outbreak to armistice’. The coin remembers one of the most significant moments in British history with a design that recalls the spirit, and with hindsight, the poignancy, of the rush to enlist encouraged by Lord Kitchener.

In 1914 Lord Kitchener was appointed to mastermind a recruitment campaign that would go on to create one of the largest volunteer armies ever known in Britain. Though many posters encouraged the men of Britain to enlist, the image of Kitchener himself came to stand for the call to fight for ‘King and Country’ that saw men respond in their thousands. It is to this instantly recognisable image that experienced coinage artist John Bergdahl turned to create his stirring design.
