Product Information

 

When news of the war broke in 1914, Australia immediately offered assistance to Britain and her allies.  Major political parties, churches, community leaders and newspapers urged people to support the war effort, and the Government implemented a vigorous recruiting campaign.  Within weeks, thousands of volunteers had come forward.

By the end of the Great War more than 416,000 Australian men had enlisted from a population of fewer than 5 million, representing approximately 38.7% of the total male population aged between 18 and 44*.

Sadly, many of these soldiers never returned home with more than 60,000 Australians losing their lives during the war. Many of these men died in battle, their final resting place the battle fields on which they fought.

Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Gold

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/4oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality.

Historic First World War Design

The coin’s reverse depicts an Australian soldier at a graveside being comforted by the spirit of his fallen comrade. Poppies can be seen in the foreground and rugged terrain in the background. The design includes the inscription 1915 - GOODBYE COBBER. GOD BLESS YOU 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.

Extremely Limited Mintage

About the Series

More than 60,000 men died in battle during the First World War. They are buried in war cemeteries or listed on memorials to the missing in countries around the world; from the United Kingdom, Belgium, France, Greece and Turkey, to Israel, the Lebanese Republic, Papua New Guinea and Syria. 

One former battlefield that is now the site of Memorials to the Missing, along with thousands of war graves, is the Anzac area of the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey, where some 10,000 Australian and New Zealand troops died during the Gallipoli campaign that lasted from 25 April until late December 1915.
