Comments

The Royal Australian Mint issued this Copper-nickel 50 cent NCLT coin as a tribute to the ANZAC's who served at Galipolli in WW1. On 25 April 1915, Australian and New Zealand troops came ashore on Turkey’s Gallipoli peninsula as part of a wider British effort to seize control of the Dardanelles straits. After the landing, the fighting ground to a stalemate, with Turkish forces holding the ridges of the precipitous terrain for the entire eight-month campaign. This coin is part of the "Australians at War" 18 coin series being issued individually.  Six coins were issued in 2014, Six in 2015 and the final Six in 2016.

All of the coins were issued in individual credit card sized coincards.


Australia Post also issued it in a PNC Cover. (12,000 Copies)


Limitd edition PNC's were issued at the Sydney ANDA show and Perth Stamp & Coin show in 2015
