Red poppies were among the first flowers to bloom across the battlefields of France and Belgium. The sight of these poppies inspired the poem In Flanders Fields by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae in 1915.

An American professor, Moina Michael, was so moved by the poem that she successfully campaigned for the flower to be adopted as a symbol of remembrance in 1921.

The design on this uncirculated $1 coin portrays the hand of a child placing a poppy into the hand of a veteran. 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 2018 year-date.

The coin is presented in a specially designed display card, which features a fold-out stand for upright display, and an image of the Wall of Remembrance at the Australian War Memorial. Each card incorporates the coin’s unnumbered Certificate of Authenticity.

    Coin Highlights:

  • Uncirculated aluminium bronze $1 coin

  • Anzac Day reverse design

  • ANZAC themed presentation card

  • Australian legal tender
