On 28th June 1914 a shot rang out in Sarajevo that ended over 40 years of peace in Europe. In little more than a month after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the First World War had begun and the human cost would be devastating, as the war laid to rest a whole generation of young men. To commemorate the centenary of World War I and the men who fought on behalf of our country, a new gold coin has been issued.
