The Royal Australian Mint in conjunction with some Australian Newspapers released this NCLT coin as part of a 14 coin set in April 2017. The first coin came with a large folding album and the coins were issued in coincards. The series is called "Legends of the Anzacs - Medals of Honour".
To get a coin you had to obtain a token from the newspaper and redeem it at a cost of $3.00. Different tokens were published each day for 2 weeks (hence 14 coins). The coins are commemorating various service medals awarded to Australian Military personnel from the Boer War to the Afghanistan War.
Ten of the 14 coins released in the series are 20 cent coins and four of them are 25 cent coins.
This 25 Cent coin is part of the second series of "Quarters" issued by the RAM. Although not meant for circulation it is legal tender. This particular coin refers to the George Cross medal which was instituted by King George VI during the Second World War as the second highest award for gallantry after the Victoria Cross. It recognises courageous acts by civilians and by service personnel not in the face of the enemy or where usual military honours would not apply.
