2014 100 Years of Anzac - Spirit Lives 'Al' Counterstamp $1 Circulating Coin
To mark the Centenary of Anzac period, the Royal Australian Mint released an official 100 Years of Anzac coin into circulation in February. It commemorates the memory of those Australians who have served and sacrificed wearing the uniform of our nation. This coin was offered in limited numbers with location specific counterstamps at two special events that commemorate momentous occasions in military history - Albany and Melbourne.
For the first time the Royal Australian Mint will be counterstamping an ‘AL’ for Albany on the highly sought-after 2014 $1 Circulating Coin - 100 Years of Anzac - The Spirit Lives.
