This NCLT $1 dollar coin was released by the RAM in 2000 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Australia's first Victoria Cross medal for gallantry being awarded to Captain Neville Howse on July 24 1900.
The coin was issued in a tall coincard.
Australia Post also issued the coin in a PNC.
Howse, born in the UK emigrated to Australia in 1889 and enlisted with the New South Wales Corps Medical Staff and travelled to South Africa to fight in the Boer War. There he managed to carry a wounded man back to safety despite having his horse shot out from under him and being continually shot at while carrying the man.
(This $1 coin is one of the more expensive NCLT Aluminium -bronze Australian $1 coins you can get, valued as at 2019 around AU$100 to $150)
