To acknowledge the sacrifice and valour of the landings of Australian and New Zealand troops at Gallipoli in 1915 the RAM released this NCLT Last ANZACS dollar coin in 1999. This is the Fine Silver (.999) proof version of the coin which was released by the RAM in a capsule inside a plush box.
By 1999 even a boy who had lied about his age to join the army at 15 or 16 would be 100, and sadly, veterans of Gallipoli were very few indeed.
The coin was also available in Aluminium-bronze as a MYO (Mint Your Own) coin with a "C" Mintmark in the visitor gallery of the Royal Australian Mint and came with a small coincard to house it.
It was also available in Aluminium-bronze with a pre-struck Mintmark as well the Mobile Press at various Royal Shows as follows:- Sydney - "S" Mintmark, Brisbane - "B" Mintmark, Melbourne - "M" Mintmark, Adelaide - "A" Mintmark - All issued in a foldable light green coincard.
Other Aluminium-bronze releases were a special Twin Pack coincard with the 1999 Year of Older Persons coin included with a "C" Mintmarked Last Anzacs coin and a PNC Australia Post release with a year 2000 dated coin. It had no mintmark.
