2014 50c Uncirculated Coin

2014 1 x 70c, 1 x $3.50 Stamp

Stamp and coin cover (PNC). This PNC features the two stamps from the issue and the Battle of Cocos Islands 1914, 2014 RAM uncirculated 50c CuNi coin.

Shortly after dawn on 9 November 1914, Australian troop transports and warships received the call that the German raider SMS Emden was lurking in the region of Port Refuge in the Cocos-Keeling Islands. The closest warship was the HMAS Sydney, which engaged in a protracted and blazing battle with the Emden.

Whilst forcing the Emden to be grounded on the North Keeling Island Reef, 134 German crewmen were killed in the battle. However, it was much more noteworthy that the wounded German prisoners sang resounding praises of the Australians who treated them. This mutual respect under adversity instilled a long-lasting sense of pride and admiration for this noble force, remembered on the anniversary of this battle.
