From the soldiers in the trenches to the nurses near the front lines, risking one’s life to save another is the very definition of heroism. The reverse of this last coin in our First World War: Allies series pays homage to the men and women who served in the British Armed Forces, represented by the gold‐plated General Service button.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Pandora Young travels to a field hospital located near the front during the First World War. While the pointed peaks of medical tents can be seen in the background, the presence of several stretcher‐bearers and other personnel suggest a battle is underway and casualties are arriving from the front lines. Special finishes place the focus on the British nurse in the foreground, whose quick movements reflect a sense of urgency; keeping pace with the stretcher‐bearers, her gaze is fixed on the wounded soldier as she quickly assesses his condition while providing words of comfort. The engraved image is paired with the gold‐plated General Service button. The selectively gold‐plated obverse features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. Mackennal.

This series reflects on the wartime contributions of select Allied forces that were united in one common cause throughout the First World War.
