Operation Hammer, the Australian defence of the Vietnamese village of Binh Ba, ranks as one of the most valorous chapters in the Vietnam conflict. Reading about the battle for Binh Ba, you are left with a sense of war at its deadliest and most disturbing. Imagine a group of diggers vastly outnumbered by an enemy that was largely unseen; a foe cunningly dressed as civilians to blend in with the citizenry. When the fight went from the open to a house-to-house confrontation, Binh Ba became a battle for survival on a scale not as yet seen by our troops in the Vietnam conflict. As they overcame the Viet Cong, our troops proved that mateship and the tenacity of the Anzac spirit was a weapon far more powerful than any conceived by the Communist forces. Deserving of every commendation they received, the men of Binh Ba are now commemorated anew in the 50th anniversary of Operation Hammer. The Bradford Exchange is proud to announce the release of the “Battle of Binh Ba Golden Proof Coin.”

The Vietnam War gave the Allied forces an enemy whose power was heightened as much by its absence as by its presence. Guerrilla tactics allowed the Viet Cong to almost disappear making them a truly formidable combatant. Our newly minted edition captures the power and the threat they posed to our forces in remarkable detail. A tank convoy patrols the village with a lookout seeking a foe whose deadliest weapon is its invisibility. There is an unnerving sense of quiet about the scene brought to life with clarity by the Master Minters of The Commonwealth Mint. The scene conveys the impending danger which greeted our troops as they attempted to dislodge the Communists from the village. The closer they get to town, the greater the threat of the Viet Cong and the People’s Army becoming an all-too present danger. The words “Heroism,” “Mateship,” “Pride” and “Courage” encircle the scene as a reminder of the stalwart strength which enabled the men of 5RAR, the cavalry and tank regiments to overcome one of the deadliest enemies ever faced by our troops. A 50th anniversary seal, cast in valuable rhodium-platinum, shines in honour of this extraordinary group of Australians. Minted to Proof standards, the highest possible quality, it is entirely layered with pure 24-carat gold and has a worldwide mintage limited of just 599. A prestigious presentation case, included at no additional cost, and an informative numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Strong demand is expected – order yours now!
