2018 $1 ANZAC Day –Lest We Forget Uncirculated Coin in Card.
Anzac Day – April 25 – is the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. S
Since then it has become a day of remembrance for all the servicemen and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice during military operations.
Red poppies were among the first flowers to bloom across the battlefields of France and Belgium.
The sight of these poppies inspired the poem In Flanders Fields by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae in 1915.
An American professor, Moina Michael, was so moved by the poem tht she successfully campaigned for the flower to be adopted as a symbol of remembrance in 1921.
This uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
This coin has an unlimited mintage.
The reverse of the design features the hand of a child placing a poppy into the hand of a veteran. A bugler in silhouette, the inscription 'Lest We Forget', and the date April 25 are also featured.
The coin’s obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the year-date.
Each coin is presented in a specially designed display card, which features a fold-out stand for upright display, and an image of the Wall of Remembrance, each card incorporates the coin's unnumbered Certificate of Authenticity.
