This Aluminium-bronze NCLT coin was issued by the RAM in 2001 & released in a coin card. It was available with a "C" Mintmark from the Public Gallery Press at the RAM. Australia Post issued the same coin with "C" Mintmark in a PNC. The coin also came with an "S" Mintmark at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Australia Post also released a PNC containing the coin with a "C" Mintmark.
The reverse of this coin shows the the iconic 'Rising Sun' Australian Army badge surrounded by the legend "The Australian Army 1901 - 2001". The Rising Sun badge originates back to 1902 when a badge was required for Australian colonial forces operating in South Africa during the Boer War. The badge depicts the Imperial Crown and a banner with the words "The Australian Army". The 'sun rays' or rising sun are in fact not that at all, originally they were to depict a semi circle of thrusting swords and bayonets around the crown which in 1902 was to depict the co-operation between the navy (the swords) and the army (the bayonets).
A special Three Coin Folder was also issued in 2001 that included the Navy and Airforce Anniversary coins.
A Fine Silver (.999) Proof version of the coin was also released in a capsule inside a plush case. This coin did not have a mintmark.
