MintRoyal Australian Mint, Canberra, Australia (1965-date)
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 particular 20 cent coin refers to the Australian Defence medal which is awarded to current and former Australian Defence Force personnel who have completed an initial enlistment period of up to four years service. Instituted in 2006, it recognises regular and reserve personnel who have served in Australian military forces since September 1945. Its red ribbon is the colour of the Flanders poppy which represents the sacrifice of our ANZAC personnel.
