Anzac Day 2015 will be an especially poignant event for Australians and New Zealanders, the 100th anniversary of Gallipoli and the Anzac legend. To commemorate the occasion, the Royal Australian Mint has released a stunning silver proof triangular coin.
At the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, Australia was a young and developing nation. After federating just thirteen years earlier, the country was determined to make its mark on the global stage and contribute to the war effort. Australia joined forces with its close neighbour, New Zealand, to capture the Gallipoli peninsula and ensure the Dardanelles strait was open to the allied navies. The Australian and New Zealand forces landed on Gallipoli on 25 April 1915, experiencing battles which would change both countries forever.
