Battle of Waterloo

The Battle of Waterloo was a major turning point for Europe

The Royal Mint & The Royal Mail have combined to come up with what I think is one of the most stunning looking PNCs to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the battle.  Most people all over the world would have heard of the Battle Of Waterloo, but not know the real significance behind it.  The Battle of Waterloo ended nearly 200 years of hostilities in Europe and ushered in the Concert of Europe, an era characterised by relative peace, material prosperity and technological progress.  It also ended the first French Empire and the political and military career of Napoleon Bonaparte, one of the greatest commanders and statesman in history.
