Comments

This coin was released into general circulation by the RAM in 2005. On the 14th August 1945 Japan accepted the allied demands for surrender marking the end of World War II. The following day it was announced in Australia sparking feelings of joy and relief from all Australians. VP Day (Victory in the Pacific day) was reported in all the papers and the Australian government gazetted it a public holiday. USA and New Zealand preferred the term VJ Day (Victory over Japan Day) and named it as such. On VP day August 15th 1945 the celebrations were rife. In the streets of Sydney a man was caught on motion picture film dancing in celebration. This film and the "dancing man" has taken on iconic status in symbolising the victory of WW II.
