This conflict marks the earliest example of unity among Australian volunteers – and the first Australian lives to be claimed by the War.

As Australia commemorates a centenary of Anzac service, the Royal Australian Mint’s Australia at War series remembers the Battle of Cocos Islands.

2014 50c Uncirculated Colour Printed Coin Australia at War - The Western Front

2014 50c Uncirculated Coin Australia at War - Gallipoli Campaign

The term ’Anzac’ is forever entwined with the Gallipoli Campaign, where the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps fought side-by-side. The shared qualities of courage, mateship and honour displayed on the shores and foothills of Gallipoli, forged the Anzac legend. We commemorate the centenary of the Gallipoli Campaign with this beautiful and memorable coin.

2015 50c Uncirculated Coin - Australia at War - El Alamein

In the early stages of the Second World War, Australian and Allied forces faced an uphill battle against the German and Italian Axis forces. From their North African base, Axis forces sought to seize control of the Suez Canal and the oilfields of the Middle East. In 1942, the Allies’ fortunes began to change due to two significant actions in the Egyptian town of El Alamein. In July, the Allies prevented Axis troops from advancing on to Alexandria despite facing a heavy offensive.

2015 50c Uncirculated Coin - Australia at War - Greece

In 1941, Germany had great fears of Greece becoming a British ally, which would jeopardise Germany’s access to the Romanian oilfields.
To protect their interests, Germany subsequently invaded Greece. Although the risks of defending Greece were apparent, British, Australian and New Zealand soldiers banded together to help defend a country that would soon be vulnerable.

2015 50c Uncirculated Coin - Australia At War - Crete

In 1941, during the Second World War, as Australian and Allied troops began withdrawing from Greece, many were relocated to the island of Crete to sustain the Royal Navy’s garrison. While German forces were initially engaged in other battles, they sought to capture the island’s three main airfields, launching an assault on Crete on 20 May.

2015 50c Uncirculated Coin - Australia at War -Tobruk

In 1941, Australian and Allied forces sought to defend Egypt and the Suez Canal from the German and Italian Axis forces. To achieve this, it was vital that the Allies hold the fortified port of Tobruk on the Libyan coast. Not only would this delay the Axis’ advance, but would also force their troops to carry the many supplies overland across 1500 kilometres of desert.

2015 50c Uncirculated Coin - Australia at War - Empire Air Training Scheme

At the outbreak of the Second World War, Britain did not have the manpower to maintain the Royal Air Force (RAF) in the impending war in Europe. A plan was subsequently put forward to form a pool of trained aircrew from all corners of the Commonwealth. Over 37,000 Australian airmen trained in air schools all across the British Empire. Many went on to serve alongside British, Canadian, New Zealand, Rhodesian, and South African aircrews in the RAF’s air war over Europe.

2015 50c Uncirculated Coin - Australia at War - War in the Pacific
