Product Information

 

The ANZAC Spirit 100th Anniversary Coin Series 2015 1/2oz Silver Proof Three-Coin Set features a trio of commemorative coins which depict symbolic images and themes from the First World War, representing Australia and New Zealand’s involvement in the Gallipoli campaign of 1915. 

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

Three Historic First World War Designs

Bravest of the Brave

The coin’s reverse depicts the Anzac soldiers as they battled to scale the cliffs above Anzac Cove. The design includes one soldier in colour in the foreground, the inscription ‘1915 – Bravest of the Brave’, a red poppy, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Billies for the Troops

The coin’s reverse depicts a symbolic image of a woman in colour giving a billy tin to a First World War Australian soldier. The image on the tin is the Alexandra Club Christmas billy tin design which features a kangaroo on the Gallipoli peninsula. The design includes the inscription ‘1915 – Billies for the Troops’, a red poppy, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Spirit of the Fallen

The coin’s reverse depicts a symbolic image of the Lone Pine tree as it was in 1915 on the left of the design, with soldiers walking through trenches filled with their fallen comrades. On the right of the design is the Lone Pine Memorial to the Missing in colour, as it appears today, with the spirits of fallen soldiers. The design includes the inscription ‘1915 – Spirit of the Fallen’, a red poppy, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender

Each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2015 year-date, and the monetary denomination on its obverse.

Limited Mintage

No more than 5,000 of The ANZAC Spirit 100th Anniversary Coin Series 2015 1/2oz Silver Proof Three-Coin Set will be released by The Perth Mint.

Anzac Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate

The three-coin set is presented in a round plastic tray which fits inside a beautifully illustrated shipper featuring First World War photography, and is accompanied by a booklet containing information and imagery from the Great War. The booklet contains a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

In late 1914, fighting on the Western Front in France and Belgium had reached a stalemate. The British War Council believed that the best chance of increasing the pressure on Germany was to attack its allies – Austria, Hungary and the Ottoman empire (Turkey).

The Gallipoli campaign lasted for eight long and harrowing months before the Anzacs were evacuated in December 1915, followed by the British and French in January 1916.

Australian troops suffered over 26,000 casualties on Gallipoli. More than 8,000 of these men were killed in action or died of wounds or disease. New Zealand suffered 8,000 casualties, including 2,800 deaths.
