The Gurkhas have been part of the British Army for 200
years.”Better to die than be a coward” is the motto of the worldfamous
Nepalese Gurkha soldiers who are a crucial part of the
British Army since 1815. The Gurkhas have come a long way and
since 2009 have been granted right to live in the UK after the long
running campaign with the support of Joan Lumley.
And, to celebrate this moment Gurkha Bullion, wanted to launch
this Gurkha Coin with the cross Khukuri and gurkha soldier on the
one side. Gurkha Bullion wants to celebrate this historic moment and
wants to give something back to the x- Gurkha veteran . So to
support a good cause Gurkha Bullion would like to give 5% from
each of the Gukha Coin’s net profit to GWT (Gurkha Welfare Trust).
“Gurkhas first battled with the British in 1814 during the Anglo-”
“Nepalese War and British forces admired the Gurkha’s military prowess and honourable tactics.A Peace Treaty (Sugauli Treaty) put an end to the war in 1816, enabling the British to officially recruit Nepali Gurkhas in their battalion. Since then, Nepali Gurkhas have distinctively served countless of battalion throughout the world. For acts of extreme valour, Gurkhas have been decorated with countless medals, and for the gallantry, 13 lionhearted soldiers have been honoured with incredible 13 Victoria Crosses. This coin symbolises”
“the Gurkha’s 200 years of service to the crown.”
BRAVEST OF THE BRAVE
“Better to die than be a coward” is the motto of the world-famous”
“Nepalese Gurkha soldiers, who serve in variety of roles, mainly in infantry but with significant numbers of engineers, logisticians and signals specialists. Witnessing the stubborn and indomitable Nepali Gurkhas who would laugh to greet every hardship, remain uncomplaining to endure hunger, thirst and wounds, and face the fights without fear, philologist and 3rd Queen Alexandra’s Own Gurkha Rifles 1931, Sir Ralph Lilley Turner, described Gurkhas as “Bravest of the brave, most generous of the generous, never had”
“country more faithful friends than you.””
KHUKURI an inwardly curved blade, is a characteristic weapon of the
Nepalese army and Royal Gurkha Rifles of the British Army.The
Khukuri came to be known to the Western world when the East India
Company came into conflict with the growing Gorkha Kingdom,
culminating in the Gurkha War of 1814–1816.The weapon gained
fame in the Gurkha War, and its continued use through both World
War I and World War II enhanced its reputation among both Allied
troops and enemy forces. Some English-speakers refer to the
weapon as a ‘Gurkha Blade’ or ‘Gurkha Knife’.
