Comments

This Fine Silver (.999) Proof NCLT $1 coin produced by the Royal Australian Mint commemorates the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War. Its reverse, designed by Mint designer Aaron Baggio, symbolizes the signing of the armistice agreement between Communist and United Nations leaders in 1953. The depiction of a Dove in flight and the word ‘Peace’ in Korean is a reminder of the ultimate goal on the still-troubled peninsula. The coin was issued in a capsule inside a plush case with limited edition certificate.



An Aluminium-bronze version of the coin was also released in a coincard.
