The Royal Australian Mint issued this NCLT coin in a coincard as a tribute to the armed forces who served in the undeclared war between Malaysia & Indonesia between 1963 to 1966. The Confrontation or "Konfrontasi" was a conflict between Indonesia and Malaysia that took place mainly on the island of Borneo. British and Commonwealth forces including Australians supported Malaysia. At stake was the future of the former British possessions, Sabah and Sarawak, which bordered Indonesia’s provinces on Borneo.
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.
