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 Decisive Value. From August to October 1918, Australians joined allied troops in a series of offensives that threatened the last of German defences in France and Belgium. Suffering a string of defeats from which it could never recover, the German army collapsed. In the Middle East, the Ottoman Army also surrendered. At 11am on November the 11th, 1918, the Armistice signed by Germany earlier that morning came into effect, finally ending the war. As soon as news of this decisive moment was known, towns and cities across Australia erupted into celebration. The significance of this day is now commemorated on November 11th each year. It is known as both Remembrance Day and Armistice Day: and marked by the wearing of red poppies, which grew in the war torn fields of Flanders.
