The Royal Australian Mint in conjunction with Australian Newspapers released this NCLT coin as part of a 15 coin series called "Anzac Spirit" in October/November 2018. The Anzac Spirit coins are commemorating the "Values that Defined our Nation"
To get a coin you had to obtain a paper token from the newspaper and redeem it at a cost of $3.00. Different tokens were published each day for just over 2 weeks (hence 15 coins). The first coin was free and came with an album to hold all 15 coins.
Eleven of the 15 coins released in the series are 20 cent coins and four of them are 50 cent coins. They were issued in a collector coin card. This 50 Cent coin is not meant for circulation however it is legal tender.
This particular coin refers to the United Value. This refers to the fact that the Australian Armed Forces during WW1 were made up of many Nationalities and Ethnic groups. Many of the 417,000 Australian volunteers were of British origin but men of many nationalities could be found in uniform. Around 1,000 indigenous Australians and several hundred Chinese were enlisted, although initially they were prevented due to racial prejudice. Men from Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Italy Russia fought with distinction. There were even some German-Australians in the Australian military even while some of their families were subject to discrimination as enemy aliens.
