This proof sterling silver collector's coin commemorates the 200th Anniversary of
the Battle of Waterloo.
The reverse of this coin shows a portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte with the
Charge of the Hussars shown in the background.
The Battle of Waterloo was fought as part of the Napoleonic Wars and it was at
Waterloo (a village south of Brussels in Belgium) that Napoleon Bonaparte’s
French soldiers met the armies of Britain and Prussia. The battle took place on
18th June 1815 and the year 2015 saw the Bicentenary of this famous Battle.
The Battle of Waterloo began with Napoleon’s 72,000 men facing the Duke of
Wellington’s army of 68,000 men. Wellington had British, Dutch, Belgian and
German soldiers on his side, but was expecting even more when the 45,000
Prussian soldiers arrived. Eventually the Prussians began to arrive and Napoleon
was forced to send groups of his soldiers to try and stop the Prussians from being
able to join up with Wellington’s forces.
By early evening it was apparent that the French were losing so instead of
defending their position, Wellington ordered his soldiers to attack and the French
army began to run away. Four days after this famous Battle, Napoleon gave up
power and was exiled to the island of St Helena.
Approved by Buckingham Palace, the obverse of each coin carries a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD.
This coin is struck to the highest PROOF quality. The design on each coin is in relief with a glorious mirror-finish background.
