Honouring those stood tall in the face of what seemed like imminent invasion by Japan in 1942, the 2017 $1 Defending a Nation 4-Coin Set captures the darkest days of Australia’s World War II experience in official legal tender.
A spellbinding fusion of traditional numismatic sculpture and glorious full-colour, the set comprises four 40mm silver-plated Proofs. Superbly designed, each 75th anniversary coin honours one of the key elements of the defence of Australia in 1942 – the Kokoda Campaign, the Battle of the Coral Sea, the Bombing of Darwin and the defence of Port Moresby respectively.
Poignant, historic and beautifully presented, the 2017 $1 Defending a Nation 4-Coin Set will make a fine acquisition for anyone interested in Australia’s rich military heritage – but you will have to be quick! Astonishingly affordable given the tiny worldwide mintage of just 1,942, we expect this set to sell out at speed. Therefore immediate action is a must!
