Product Information

 

2014 will mark 100 years since the departure of the armada, which carried the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) and the New Zealand Expeditionary Force (NZEF), who would later become known as the ‘Anzacs’, from King George's Sound at Albany, Western Australia, on 1 November 1914, to join the Allied forces in the northern hemisphere. 

The biggest convoy to have ever left the country up until that time, the fleet that left King George Sound consisted of 39 ships, carrying approximately 30,000 Australian and New Zealand troops, and some 8,000 horses.

The inscriptions FIRST CONVOY ALBANY W.A. and 100TH ANNIVERSARY NOVEMBER 1914, a red poppy motif, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark are also incorporated into the design.

Australian Legal Tender
