Anzac Day falls on the 25 April each year, the day Australian and New Zealand troops landed on the Gallipoli peninsula in 1915.
The 2022 Anzac Day $1 Coin in Card recognises the 80th anniversary of the Kokoda Trail Campaign of World War II, a series of fierce engagements fought between Japanese and Allied forces in the then Australian territory of Papua.
Issued as Australian legal tender, the uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the coin’s reverse and obverse designs.
The reverse of the coin portrays Australian troops climbing the mountainous jungle track, the coin’s artistry includes a symbolic flaming torch. As well as the inscriptions ‘25 APRIL’ and ‘LEST WE FORGET’, the design also incorporates The Perth Mint’s historic ‘P’ mintmark.
The coin is housed in a specially designed card which features a fold-out stand for upright display.
