The Great War, also known as the First World War, began in July 1914 as a reaction to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, while on a political visit to Sarajevo. The war commenced when Austro-Hungary declared war on Serbia; then treaties came into play as Russia entered the war in defense of Serbia. As a result, Germany, allied with Austro-Hungary, declared war on Russia. By late summer 1914 most of Europe, including France and Great Britain, had become entangled in the war.
Three years later, in 1917, the tsarist government of Russian fell to the Bolsheviks and Russia withdrew from the conflict. The United States entered the war in April 1917, providing the Allies with the strength to defeat Germany. Each coin in this set was circulated during the Great War.
