On behalf of the Falkland Islands Government, Pobjoy Mint announced the release of a 2014 collectable coin which commemorates the Centenary of the Battle of the Falkland Islands.

Referred to as the most decisive naval battle of WWI, the Battle of the Falkland Islands gave the allies a much-needed surge of confidence on the seas which was especially important because other areas of the war such as Gallipoli, were not proceeding as hoped.  The Battle also represented one of the last important instances of old-style naval warfare, between ships and sailors and their guns alone, without the aid or interference of airplanes, submarines or underwater minefields.

The design on the coin features the fast light cruiser HMS Glasgow, one of the key ships in the battle, surround by bomb water explosions and the date of the battle.

Available in Base metal, this bi-metallic coin features a couped effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, Lord of Mann, by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS.
