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 Honest Value. To Charles Bean, Australia's official historian of WW1, photographs were "sacred records" that would allow "future generations to see the plain, simple, honest truth". He valued photography for its documentary role and had little time for overly-dramatized propaganda or staged pictures. Concerned at the absence of authentic photographs of Australians, he commissioned polar explorers Frank Hurley (As depicted on this coin) and Hubert Wilkins as official photographers to the Australian Imperial Force. The pair took mainly black-and-white images but also made motion pictures and colour plates.
