The most iconic WWI commemorative ever issued?

In 2014, The Royal Mint issued the first in a five coin series to commemorate the centenary of WWI from ‘outbreak to armistice’.

Today you have the chance to add the iconic ‘Outbreak’ of WWI Gold Proof £2 to your collection, and remember the men and women who made the greatest sacrifice for their country over 100 years ago.

The most iconic image of WWI

This ‘Outbreak’ of WWI Gold Proof £2 features a design that recalls the spirit, and with hindsight, the poignancy, of the rush to enlist encouraged by Lord Kitchener.

Though many posters encouraged the men of Britain to enlist to fight in 1914, it is the image of Lord Kitchener that is most iconic.

Minted in 22 Carat Gold to The Royal Mint’s unrivalled Proof finish, this coin is the perfect commemoration of the young men who signed up to a war they believed would be over by Christmas.

Limited numbers available – no longer available from The Royal Mint

Over the past four years, we have built up a small stock of these iconic coins which we are now releasing exclusively for Westminster Collection customers to mark the Centenary of the end of WWI.

This coin is from an extremely limited mintage of just 734 and is NO LONGER AVAILABLE at The Royal Mint, so this may well be your last chance to add this significant coin to your collection.
