As Australia continues to commemorate the Centenary of Anzac, it is not just our diggers whom we remember. Australian heroes came in all different shapes, sizes… and species. Creatures great and small who contributed their strength, energy and lives to the Australian Imperial Forces and the Australian Defence Force helped to define the spirit of our great nation.

Around the world, dogs are talented in helping people. Whether it is their ability to guard property, warn people of danger, provide companionship or hear, smell and see what humans can’t, they are loyal and devoted creatures.

2015 $1 Uncirculated Coin - Unlikely Heroes  Great and Small - Feline Mascot 
On Navy ships, cats have long been regarded as creatures of many talents. Whether they were catching rats and mice to protect food from vermin or using their senses to detect bad weather, they provide hope and comfort to the crews. Whatever happened to them, they would land on their own four feet, fitting much into their nine lives

2015 $1 Uncirculated Coin - Unlikely Heroes  Great and Small - Murphy the Donkey
Donkeys are well equipped with sturdy feet and shorter legs than horses, and are built to withstand the hot or rugged environments better than their equine cousins. They also have the strength and endurance that allows them to conquer the steepest hills and rockiest surfaces, even with a lot of weight on their backs. 

2015 $1 Coloured Frunc Coin -Unlikely Heroes Great and Small- Horrie The Dog
Around the world, dogs are talented in helping people. Whether it is their ability to guard property, warn people of danger, provide companionship or hear, smell and see what humans can’t, they are loyal and devoted creatures.

2015 $1 Coloured Frunc Coin -Unlikely Heroes Great and Small- Shake the Kangaroo
Kangaroos have been celebrated symbols of Australia for many years. As they powerfully and gracefully bounce across the Australian landscape, they embody everything that is special about our nation. Therefore, for Australians serving overseas, they have a wonderful ability to be symbols of pride and hope. Kangaroos also touched the hearts of patriotic Australians, becoming the stars of recruitment ads which encouraged people to ‘Hop to it!’ and join the war effort.

2015 $1 Coloured Frunc Coin -Unlikely Heroes Great and Small- Sandy the Horse
Horses were loyal companions and powerful mounts for soldiers at war. Whether charging into battle, carrying armoured soldiers or transporting mounted infantrymen, they contributed their strength in all terrains.

2015 $1 Coloured Frunc Coin -Unlikely Heroes Great and Small- Pigeon
Pigeons are misunderstood birds with a number of hidden talents: speed, endurance, homing instincts and eyesight that can detect more colours than humans can. They have been unsung heroes of many conflicts, carrying messages across battlefields when aeroplanes, radios and human feet would have been
too easily detected by the enemy.
