DISTINGUISHED SERVICE MEDAL
The Royal Australian Mint in conjunction with some Australian Newspapers released this NCLT coin as part of a 14 coin series called "Legends of the Anzacs" in April 2017.
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. They were issued in a collector coin card.
This particular 20 cent coin refers to the Distinguished Service medal which is awarded to members of the Australian Defence Force who demonstrate distinguished leadership in warlike operations. Introduced in 1991, it is the second highest distinguished service decoration in the Australian honours system and has been awarded 158 times.
