The veterans who fought in Vietnam are a band of brothers unique in the ANZAC story. Unlike those who came before or after them, these diggers were caught in the political crossfire of a war nobody understood. And like men who are in the middle of something, they were the most vulnerable. In the fifty years since our troop withdrawal from the region, Vietnam veterans have received their due recognition. The Bradford Exchange has been a forefront of this recognition through a range of Veterans Remembered editions. The '50th Anniversary Veterans Remembered with Gratitude Commemorative Coin' proudly reminds us of the bravery of those who were only 19.

The Australian Vietnam Forces National Memorial is a poignant testament to a group of men who endured so much in the service of their country. On its imposing structure are thoughts, words and images which reflect the Vietnam experience. It inspires the centrepiece to the coin's design. The slab-like walls showcased on the coin now depict equally moving messages such as 'A Nation's Gratitude,' 'Vietnam Remembered,' 'Total Withdrawal 1972,' 'We Will Remember Them' and 'Lest We Forget.' The inclusion of Robert Todonai's portrait of diggers in the heart of battle reinforces the magnitude of our veterans' story. The tumult of war and the reflections of remembrance reminds us of the courage and resilience of our Vietnam diggers. Around this powerfully moving scene are the names of the major Vietnam battles, a fitting conclusion honouring some of the bravest men of the ANZAC legend.

Astute collectors hold oversize coins in high esteem because they appreciate the technical difficulties required to create coinage at such a large size. The 65mm diameter of the '50th Anniversary Veterans Remembered with Gratitude' Commemorative Coin' is a particularly complex size to strike. Proof-quality coining dyes create its polished, mirror-like fields and raised imagery. It is entirely layered in pure 24-carat gold creating a shining, elegant tribute to the heroism of our Vietnam diggers. The coin arrives sealed for heirloom protection in a crystal-clear capsule. It arrives in a museum-quality presentation box accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity which outlines its heritage.
