The Coalition (Spanish: Coalición), also but rarely known as Conservative Coalition, was a Chilean coalition formed in 1891 after the 1891 Chilean Civil War and it was the main opposer of the Liberal Alliance. The Coalition was formed by the Conservative Party, democrats, nationals and different liberal organizations. Along with the Liberal Alliance, it was one of the two parties of the bipartidist system of that time. Between 1920 and 1925 it took as name National Union and during that period it was formed by the Conservative Party, the unionist liberals, the nationals and the liberal democrats.
