This Fine Silver (.999) NCLT coin issued by the RAM commemorates the events of the 27th of July 2003 which was the 50th anniversary of the negotiated truce that saw the end of the war on the Korean peninsula that had begun in June 1950 when the North Korean army poured into South Korea. Within just a few short days of the invasion the United Nations called for member countries to send forces to Korea to halt the advance. Australia answered the call by sending a squadron of attack aircraft from the RAAF and the 1st Royal Australian Regiment (1RAR). This coin was issued in a capsule with certificate inside a plush grey box.
Aluminium-bronze versions of the coin were issued with (B), (M) & (S) Counterstamps at the relevant ANDA Shows during 1993 and a (C) Counterstamp was available at the Public Gallery Press at the RAM .
