Do you find this coin offensive? It's been the cause of much controversy since it's release-as it features Lord Kitchener and the infamous slogan 'Your Country Needs You.' The coin, released by The Royal Mint, is said to glorify the blinkered mentality of a time that sent millions to their death. The coin is part of a series of coins set for release that commemorate the First World War.
