Comments

Royal Australian Mint issued this NCLT coin as a tribute to those who contended with the German colony of New Guinea. This conflict marks the earliest example of unity among Australian volunteers – and the first Australian lives to be claimed by the War. This coin is part of the "Australians at War" 18 coin series being issued individually.
