The Royal Australian Mint in conjunction with some Australian Newspapers released this coin as part of a 14 coin series called "ANZACs to Afghanistan". To get a coin you had to obtain a token from the newspaper and redeem it at a cost of $3.00. Different tokens were published each day for 2 weeks (hence 14 coins). The coins are commemorating 14 significant military moments that have shaped Australia over the past 100 years from World War 1 to the modern day. Ten of the 14 coins released in the series are 20 cent coins and four of them are 25 cent coins. They were issued in a collector card.
This 20 Cent coin pays tribute to the Australian 5th Division who were tasked with making a diversion in the north to prevent German troops from moving south towards the Somme. On July 9th 1916 they assaulted German trenches near Fromelles, where they suffered very heavy casualties.
