Comments

This NCLT Aluminium-bronze $1 coin has been issued by the RAM in a four coin multi nation set. Included in the set are a £2 coin from the United Kingdom, a $2 coin from Canada and a €5 coin from Belgium. All four coins commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings.
 

The Royal Mint has issued a similar set in the UK. https://www.changechecker.org/2019/11/06/d-day-commemorated-by-four-world-renowned-mints/

On D-Day, over 2,000 Australian airmen took part in the battle of the skies above the invasion beaches, in addition to 500 Australian sailors serving in the escort fleets. Notably, Australian officers held places in various British units throughout the campaign, gaining experience of British practises which they could then take home after the war.

(An actual Obverse & Reverse pic will be provided when I get one of the coins.)
