The World War I theme is continued with the parallel release of this Isle of Man Treasury Crown featuring a lone war horse in 'No Man's Land', between two enemy trench systems, and the Royal British Legion red poppy as a symbol of remembrance.
Most animals that travelled with the army had a job to do. Horses were kept as draft or pack animals to transport heavy supplies to the front but over the course of the war, the vulnerability of horses to modern machine gun and artillery fire reduced their utility on the battlefield.
This exclusive Isle of Man Treasury Crown is a must for any military history enthusiast and all coin collectors and is supplied in a plush-lined hard-shelled collector's box.
