Commemorative 100 years since the beginning of the First World War

2014 marked the anniversary of the start if WWI, and the Belgian mint produced 15,000 coins to mark the anniversary of this major event.

During World War I Germany invaded Belgium, resulting in the British army getting involved, and governed over 95% of the country. The invasion was intended to give Germany access to Paris through neutral territory, but the Belgians retaliated, holding Germany back for a month and gave the French and British armies more time to prepare. The invasion of Belgium during the war see the result of between 5,500 and 6,500 French and Belgian citizens executed, and a major food crisis.

The coin was designed by Luc Luycx, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War. To proof standard, this was a non-circulating coin, with only 15,000 produced to mark the anniversary, as part of the commemorative collection.
