Product Information

 

By the end of the Gallipoli campaign more than 10,000 Australian and New Zealand troops had lost their lives and some 18,000 had been wounded. The bodies of many of the fallen were never found, and the hills and gullies above Anzac Cove became their final resting place.

Gallipoli was the first major test for the newly federated Australian nation. People believed that in the Dardanelles, Australia’s soldiers laid the foundation for a lasting sense of national identity.

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

Historic First World War Design

The coin’s reverse depicts Australian troops in wooden row boats approaching the Gallipoli shore, with its rugged terrain in the background. The design includes the inscription ‘Making of a Nation’, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender

Each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2015 year-date, and the monetary denomination on its obverse.

Limited Mintage

The Perth Mint will release no more than 7,500 of The ANZAC Spirit - Making of a Nation 2015 1oz Silver Proof Coin.

Anzac Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate

About the Series

In late 1914, fighting on the Western Front in France had reached a stalemate. Senior British political and military figures thought that the pressure in western Europe could be eased by attacking the Central Powers, comprising of Germany and her Allies, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire (Turkey), in the eastern Mediterranean.

The British Admiralty decided upon a naval assault on the Turkish capital of Constantinople, by a fleet of British and French ships which would force their way through the Dardanelles into the Sea of Marmora, with the aim of assisting Russia in her fight against the Turks, and to open Russia’s Black Sea ports to the Mediterranean. 

After the navy was unable to breach the Turkish defence, it was decided to send infantry against the enemy’s shore batteries, and so began the Anzac legend.
