The Royal Australian Mint in conjunction with some Australian Newspapers released this NCLT coin as part of a 15 coin set in October/November 2018. The first coin came with a large folding album and the coins were issued in coincards. The series is called "Anzac Spirit - 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).
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 20 Cent coin is not meant for circulation however it is legal tender.
This particular coin refers to the Curious Value. More than 417,000 men volunteered to serve in the Australian Military Forces during WW1. As loyal members of the British Empire, some saw it their patriotic duty to help Britain, in its time of crisis, defeat Imperial Germany and its allies on land, sea and in the air. Others were attracted to the armed forces through the possibility of a stable job, while many more enlisted with a spirit of adventure and a desire to see more of the world and be a part of momentous events playing out on the international stage. Most Australians taken overseas by the war were travelling for the very first time - and thousands of them became avid tourists during periods of leave or while resting and recuperating in Egypt, England and France.
