The Royal mint's newest WWI £5 coin is set to feature British nurse Edith Cavell. Cavell worked as a nurse in German-occupied Belgium where she helped save the lives of soldiers from both sides. She was helping Allied soldiers escape to the Netherlands when she was shot by German soldiers in 1915. The coin will be released next year to mark the centenary of the war.
