The Perth Mint has released the next gold coin release from The ANZAC Spirit 100th Anniversary Coin Series commemorating those who lost their lives on the Western Front during the First World War.
By the end of the First World War more than 416,000 Australian men had volunteered for service, representing approximately 38.7% of the total male population aged between 18 and 44. Sixty thousand of these men would never make it home.
More than 100 years after the beginning of the ‘war to end all wars’, we continue to honour the Anzac spirit which embodies the qualities of courage, mateship and sacrifice demonstrated at Gallipoli, the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces in 1915.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,000 of The ANZAC Spirit 100th Anniversary Coin Series – We Will Remember Them 2018 1/4oz Gold Proof Coin.
The coin’s reverse depicts a soldier in a field of poppies playing the bugle. The design includes a red poppy.
Each coin will be presented in a black and red themed display case featuring the words PRIDE, RESPECT, and GRATITUDE on the outside of the case, within a themed shipper, and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity
