Owner Comments:

The bloodshed of World War I ended in 1918 at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. To mark the cessation of hostilities 100 years ago, The Perth Mint offers this carefully considered numismatic tribute honouring the courage and sacrifice of those who suffered the conflict’s unremitting brutality at Gallipoli, in the Middle East and on the Western Front.

Symbols of Peace & Remembrance

The coin’s reverse portrays a dove which has for millennia symbolised ‘peace’. The bird is holding another poignant symbol in its beak. Red poppies were the first flowers to bloom in the devastated battlefields of Western Europe and soon became universally associated with the act of remembrance.

99.99% Pure Gold

This remarkable release is struck from 1/4oz of 99.99% pure gold.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Australian Currency Act 1965, this 100th anniversary coin portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.

Extremely Limited Mintage

With a maximum mintage of just 1,000 the coin represents an especially rare and highly desirable tribute.
