Comments

The Royal Australian Mint in conjunction with some Australian Newspapers released this coin in a coincard as part of a 14 coin set. The first coin came with a large folding album. The series is called "Anzacs Remembered".


To get a coin you had to obtain a token from the newspaper and redeem it at a cost of $3.50. Different tokens were published each day for 2 weeks (hence 14 coins). The coins are commemorating events of World War 1 that Australians were involved in.

This 20 Cent coin pays tribute to the men of the 1st Australian Imperial Force in WW1.

A special $1 coin was also produced as part of the set which is very difficult to obtain due to very low mintage. It was issued separately from the 14 coin set and was only obtainable if you were a Rewards Member of News Limited.
