The Australian Special Air Service (SAS), the crack regiment revered as the 'eyes and ears' of the Australian Defence Force, celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2007.
This superb coloured coin provides an outstanding opportunity for collectors of Australian military commemoratives to acquire a meaningful precious metal tribute that is fully supported by the SAS itself.
The Perth mint with co operation with the SAS has released this tribute to the special people of the SAS. With our elite soldiers being involved in vital contributions in international hot spots over 50years, including action in Borneo, Vietnam, Somalia, Kuwait, East Timor, Afghanistan and Iraq.
The SAS 1oz silver proof coin is limited to no more than 7,500.
The coin's reverse depicts SAS soldiers in action in a variety of operational contexts.
The design, which includes coloured elements and the words AUSTRALIAN SAS 1957-2007, also portrays the SAS badge incorporating the words WHO DARES WINS.
