WAR IN THE PACIFIC
12 Sided Smooth
Royal Australian Mint issued this NCLT coin as a tribute to those who served in the War in the Pacific. The war came to Australia in 1942 when Japanese forces in the Pacific overran British and Commonwealth forces in Malaya and Singapore and invaded New Guinea. Darwin and Northern Australia was repeatedly bombed while Sydney and Newcastle were also attacked. Along the Kokoda Trail and at Milne Bay, Australian forces blunted the Japanese offensive in Papua. From 1943 to 1945 Australians fought in New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, and were fighting in Borneo when the Japanese ultimately surrendered in 1945.
This coin is part of the "Australians at War" 18 coin series being issued individually. This coin is partly colourised.
