This NCLT Aluminium-bronze $1 colourised coin was released in a coincard by the RAM in 2015 as part of a six coin series of ANZAC themed Animals at War coins. Mintage to be confirmed but capped at 30,000.
This coin depicts "Shake" the Kangaroo who became the star of a photograph in which he was shaking hands with an Australian soldier near the Egyptian pyramids. This was a powerful image of battlers connecting with home, and due to the handshake the kangaroo earned the nickname "Shake".
