The Royal Australian Mint released this NCLT 50 cent coin to commemorate the Battles of Coral & Balmoral during the Vietnam War. It was released on a coin card.
Throughout May & June of 1969 Australian Troops fought their largest and most sustained engagement of the Vietnam War. In a succession of actions that occurred over four weeks, in what was then part of Bien Hoa Province, units of the 1st Australian Task Force confronted regimental-sized forces of the North Vietnamese Regular Army that made repeated assaults against Fire Support Bases Coral & Balmoral. All attacks were repelled at great cost to the enemy, although 25 Australians died in the fighting and over 100 were wounded.
