Celebrating the work of one of Australia’s most honourable organisations, The Perth Mint is pleased to present this 1oz silver coin.
For 100 years the Returned and Services League (RSL) has ensured that adequate care, advocacy and financial assistance is provided to past and present servicemen and women of the Australian Defence Force.
The RSL was founded in Australia in 1916 by returning soldiers from World War I with the aim of continuing to provide the camaraderie, concern, and mateship shown amongst the Australian diggers while they were at war.
