The Royal Australian Mint issued this NCLT 50 cent coin as a tribute to those who served in Crete during the Second World War in 1941. As Australian and Allied troops began withdrawing from Greece, many were relocated to the island of Crete to sustain the Royal Navy’s garrison. While German forces were initially engaged in other battles, they sought to capture the island’s three main airfields, launching an assault on Crete on 20 May 1941.
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.
