The popular Australia at War series continues with this uncirculated coin, paying tribute to the Australians involved in critical actions at El Alamein, which marked the turning point of the Second World War.

From their North African base, Axis forces sought to seize control of the Suez Canal and the oilfields of the Middle East.

In 1942, the Allies’ fortunes began to change due to two significant actions in the Egyptian town of El Alamein. In July, the Allies prevented Axis troops from advancing on to Alexandria despite facing a heavy offensive. From late October until early November, Australian and Allied forces courageously broke the German and Italian lines, forcing their retreat.
