Our history tells of a dark day in February 1942 when the people of Darwin looked skyward and saw a squadron of Japanese bombers bearing down on them. As the planes dropped their deadly payload, the citizens realised that war had come to the very shores of Australia. From that day forward, our war effort took on a personal tone. We were fighting for our lives against an enemy determined to invade. I don’t think words can adequately convey the mood which pervaded Australia during the events which have become known as the Battle for Australia. But thanks to the spirit of the ANZAC, a new generation of diggers and civilians protected us to preserve the way of life we now enjoy. Approved by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and commissioned to commemorate the 80th anniversary of this nation-changing event, our exclusive new “Australia Under Attack 80th Anniversary Golden Proof Coin” remembers the courage of the men who quite literally saved our nation.

An implacable enemy determined to conquer new lands. A young nation whose geographical scope made it one of the largest on earth, with a comparatively small military and one who had never experienced invasion before. The odds were not in Australia’s favour, but the ANZAC spirit was. This newly minted masterpiece beautifully expresses the power of courage over the seemingly insurmountable. The coin conveys the enormity of the situation. Japan’s rising sun looms large and threatening over the men below.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge remind us of the midget submarine attack, while gunners prepare to meet the incoming fighters in the sky, recalling the horror of the Darwin attack. The scenes place you in the heat of battle, alongside the men who fought to preserve our freedom. Sustained by their courage and their love of country and family, not even the might of the Japanese empire could deter them from their goal. 80 years on, they represent the finest examples of the ANZAC tradition. An 80th anniversary seal in precious rhodium forever confirms the importance of the Battle of Australia in our collective history. Strong demand is expected so don’t miss out. Order now!
