Anzac Day – April 25 – is recognised as a ceremonial occasion to reflect on the cost of war, a day of commemoration for all Australian and New Zealand soldiers who died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations, and the contribution and suffering of all those who have served on behalf of their country.
This uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. The 2016 Anzac Day – Royal Australian Armoured Corps $1 Coin in Card has an unlimited mintage.
The reverse design portrays a Bushmaster Protected Mobility Vehicle in the background with a soldier in the cabin of the vehicle. A bugler in silhouette, the inscription ‘Lest We Forget’ and the date, April 25, are also incorporated into the design.
The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the year-date.
The coin is presented in a specially designed display card, which features a fold-out stand for upright display, and portrays an image of members of the Royal Australian Armoured Corps.
