The Third Battle of Ypres

The Third Battle of Ypres in Flanders, Belgium in 1917 was conceived to capture Passchendaele in order to break through German forces, control coastal Ostende and Zeebrugge, and destroy the German submarine bases there. But the enemy was ready, minimising meaningful gains; rain and mud added to the monstrous death toll.

British and Canadian troops finally captured Passchendaele — at an estimated cost of 310,000 British Dominion casualties, including 38,000 Australians. Passchendaele and the Somme battle in 1916 epitomised the suffering, tragedy and futility of the Great War.

This commemorative five crown coin, approved by Buckingham Palace, is exclusive to The Bradford Mint. Minted in fine 999 Proof quality silver with black ruthenium and 24-carat gold accents, it portrays the supreme heroism of those who sacrificed their lives at Ypres. 

This limited edition is limited to just 199 coins worldwide so early action is recommended.
