Owner Comments:

Late in World War I, one of the world’s most successful offensive cavalry charges of the 20th century took place. It was by no means the last cavalry charge of history. That honor probably goes to the Poles during the Battle of Schoenfeld on March 1, 1945, when their cavalry overwhelmed a German artillery position.

But on the afternoon of Oct. 31, 1917, the 4th Australian Light Horse charged the Ottoman lines at Beersheba [Be’er Sheva]. For the Aussies it was their moment of glory. It opened the road to Jerusalem and the eventual fall of the Ottoman Empire.

This coin have been struck to mark the centenary, not just of the charge itself but also celebrating the daring Australian Light Horse – and its horses.

The $25 is the work of Wade Robinson
