2011 20c Uncirculated Coin - Australia Remembers - War Historians



This is the third coin in what has become an admired and cherished coin series.

In 2011 we recognise Australian war historians that, over the years, shaped our perception of conflict via unbiased and independent documenting and recording in perilous conditions. Well known correspondents include Banjo Patterson during the Boer War and Australia’s most noted war correspondents, C.E.W. Bean, chronicler of Gallipoli and founder of the Australian War Memorial and Damien Parer, who captured memorable images from the Kokoda track. They, and the many since, have exemplified bravery and integrity to report on each Australian campaign and ensure 'Australia Remembers'.

The reverse design of this $1 coin is based on an image from the Australian War Memorial depicting an Australian official photographer, standing with tripod and camera on a British Mark V tank recording the advance of Australian troops through the Hindenburg line during World War I.

This is another coin that you will need to ensure your collection remains complete.
