2014 ANZAC Spirit First Convoy 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin

2014 will mark 100 years since the departure of Australia’s first convoy of military ships which carried the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) and the New Zealand Expeditionary Force (NZEF), who would later become known as the ‘Anzacs’, from King George’s Sound at Albany, to join the Allied forces in the northern hemisphere.

The convoy set sail on 1 November 1914, carrying troops from New Zealand and most of the Australian states. The biggest convoy to have ever left Australia up until that time, the fleet that left King George’s Sound consisted of 39 ships, carrying approximately 30,000 Australian and New Zealand troops, and some 8,000 horses.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,914 of The ANZAC Spirit – First Convoy 2014 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin.

The coin’s reverse features two ships in the convoy as they set sail from King George’s Sound in Albany, and a list of the 39 ships that sailed from Albany’s shores. The inscriptions FIRST CONVOY ALBANY W.A. and 100TH ANNIVERSARY NOVEMBER 1914, a red poppy motif, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark are also incorporated into the design.

The coin's obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2014 year-date, and the monetary denomination.

Each coin is presented in a black and red themed display case featuring the words ‘PRIDE’, ‘RESPECT’, and ‘GRATITUDE’, within a themed shipper.
