One of the greatest enigmas of the Vietnam War was Khe Sanh. The protracted campaign to defend the strategic area was seen by many as a ruse of the People's Army of North Vietnam to distract American forces from a greater imperative: what is now known as the Tet Offensive, one of the turning points of the war. No evidence has ever been found to support or refute attacking Khe Sanh as subterfuge, but one fact is certain: The men who endured 77 long days of constant bombardment deserve to be recognised for their heroic stance. In the 50th anniversary of this historically significant event, The Bradford Exchange is proud to honour these forgotten heroes with "Battle for Khe Sanh 50th Anniversary Gold Proof Coin", acknowledging the importance of the Khe Sanh siege and men of all Vietnam battles.

Minted with the full approval of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, it is entirely layered with pure 24-carat gold. A specially struck 50 years seal provides a proud context for the coin, made all the more significant due to its creation in rare and precious rhodium-platinum. The adjacent Swarovski "ruby" crystal, hued red for remembrance, reminds all who gaze upon the coin to pause and reflect. The reverse of this limited edition showcases a raised relief metallic portrait of soldiers defending the strategically important region of Khe Sanh along with a map of the region and the iconic Chinock helicopter. It arrives in a prestigious presentation case, and an informative numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Only 999 coins is available and minted, so don't wait – order yours today!

The Bradford Exchange proudly supports the Defence Force Welfare Association whose aim is to promote and protect the conditions and well being of the Defence Family that embraces over three million Australians. Your purchase of the coin will help us help the DFWA continue the truly inspirational endeavours of this remarkable organisation. If the DFWA had existed a hundred years ago, the families of those original WWI diggers would have enjoyed a quality of life befitting their courage in the defence of our nation and the freedom we enjoy.
