The next release in our Australia Remembers series is now available, and just in time for ANZAC Day. The Australia Remembers series recognises those who have made history beyond the battlefields. In 2012 we pay tribute to the Australian Merchant Navy, who have played an essential role in supporting Australian forces on battlefields around the world.
Merchant mariners are a country's lifeline, transporting essential supplies through wartime and peace. During WWII, the Merchant Navy suffered a higher rate of casualties than any of the armed forces. Their courage and commitment has been honoured with memorials and service medals, and now by the Royal Australian Mint.
This special coin is presented in the now traditional poppy adorned card.
