World War I was the war to end all wars, or at least that is what people thought, believed and hoped for. World War One lasted from 1914-1918, 2018 was the 100th anniversary of the end of this horrific conflict. Mints all over the world issued commemorative pieces to honour this event. Some of them were sold at outrageous prices. This set was made two years ago, they made 100 sets with a plain edge and 100 sets with the milled edge and we bought them all! These are of excellent workmanship; they were done by someone who does work for the Royal Mint. As usual, when Coincraft makes a good buy, you make a good buy! Here we offer the George V 1918 commemorative retro pattern crown in polished steel.
This colourful 5 mark notgeld from 1920s Bielefeld was issued to commemorate the end of World War I. The note lists all 29 states Germany was at war with and the countries it made peace with. It also records the end date of the reign of Kaiser Wilhelm II in 1918, which marked the start of the German Republic. The design shows a man with a pipe and a man sowing seeds. Historic and Uncirculated.
The Military Medal was awarded to personnel of the British Armed Forces, and to personnel of other Commonwealth countries, below commissioned rank, for bravery in battle on land. The award was established in 1916, with retrospective application to 1914, with over 115,000 being awarded during the First World War alone. The award was discontinued in 1993 when it was replaced by the Military Cross. You have the uncrowned bust of George V on one side and on the reverse the crowned cipher of George V with the words FOR BRAVERY IN THE FIELD beneath, all surrounded by a wreath and suspended from a red, white and blue ribbon. The originals were struck in silver. These superbly produced replicas are struck in cupro-nickel and stamped COPY but look and feel just like the real thing. This is the first time we have been able to get a supply of these medals and at this price, they are sure to be popular as even the cheapest original would cost around £500 these days.
In 1921 the American Government authorized a new Silver Dollar to honour the end of World War One. It became known as The Peace Dollar. They are full crown sized and struck in .900 fine Silver. The coins on offer are dated 1922-1927. Originally it was going to be a one-year issue, but it became so popular that they continued making them from time to time until about 1934. Our Peace Dollars are in Very Fine condition with the details very readable. These are nice coins that have had a bit of good honest wear from actually being used. We think you will like them.
