Preserving the knowledge of wartime sacrifices made by our defence force is important to new generations of Australians, as numbers attending ANZAC Day ceremonies testifies.
Anzac Day is a day on which we honour all those who gave their lives in the service of their country. This year’s tribute salutes the engineers who have served, and continue to serve, in the Australian Defence Force.
The engineers play a pivotal role in providing combat engineering, construction and other technical support to the Australian Defence Force.
This tribute to the Royal Australian Engineers reflects the true ANZAC spirit.
The design on this uncirculated $1 coin portrays an engineer searching for landmines and a bulldozer in the background. A bugler in silhouette, the inscription ‘Lest We Forget’ and the date of ANZAC Day, April 25, are also included in the design.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and the 2013 year-date, and monetary denomination. Each coin is presented in a specially designed display card-stand featuring an image of a Royal Australian Engineer conducting a dawn service.
