The iconic Australian War Memorial’s mosaic from the Hall of Memory will soon circulate in coloured $2 coins unveiled by Defence Minister Marise Payne and Small Business Minister Michael McCormack today.
“Australia’s ANZAC story and legacy commemorates the gallantry and sacrifice of the tens of thousands of Australians who fought and died in the First World War on our country’s behalf,” Senator Payne said.
Ahead of Anzac Day, the Royal Australian Mint has released a new coloured $2 circulating coin to commemorate the Anzac legacy.
For those who wish to keep this coin, a pack of 5 coins or a $15 collectible version of this coin is available for purchase on the eShop.
