Coin Story

The Battle of Waterloo took place in Belgium on 18 June, 1815. It ended the centuries old Anglo-French wars, the spectacular career of Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France and ushered in almost half a century of international peace in Europe.

There were three armies involved; the Prussian army under the command of Blucher, the Anglo-Dutch force under the command of Wellington and Napoleon's army known as Armée du Nord.

In a critical blunder, Napoleon waited until midday to give the command to attack in order to let the waterlogged ground dry. The delay gave Blucher's troops time to join the fight. The battle, which included infantry, cavalry and guns, ended that evening with Napoleon and his army retreating in chaos. Wellington went on to serve as British Prime Minister.

The battle coined the expression "met his Waterloo", meaning the person has suffered a decisive or final defeat or setback.
