To continue commemorating the Anzac story, the Royal Australian Mint has partnered with News Corp Australia once again to develop, design and produce a limited edition fourteen-part collection recognising key themes from the First World War until present.
This collection acknowledges the men and women who have served our country and honouring their gallant or distinguished conduct or service with the 14 part coin collection – Legends of the Anzacs. In recognition of the Anzac Centenary commemorative period each coin explores a different military honours (both Imperial and Australian honours) awarded to Australians throughout the past 100 years.
Each coin design explores a different medal and the stories behind them, inspired by images supplied by the Australian War Memorial, Gary Ramage and the Australian Government Department of Defence.
