Considered one of the most audacious operations of WWI, Magnus Opus was a testament to the courage and skill of the Allied troops in helping turn a carefully conceived and meticulously planned campaign into a swift, decisive victory. Our brave ANZACs played a significant role in the success of Magnus Opus. Commemorate the resilience and courage of our troops who battled German forces, the elements and the devastating power of technology above and below ground. It is a legendary victory now forever honoured in the ‘Battle of Messines Magnus Opus Golden Proof Coin'.

The lower half of the coin shows the cramped, dangerous conditions endured by our Mining Corp in digging some of the mine shafts. Nearby, those triggering the explosion faced their own ordeal with a nervous enemy who knew disaster was imminent. The upper portion of the coin hosts a beautiful recreation of Charles Wheeler’s iconic Battle of Messines painting. The destructive power of the explosion lights up the darkened sky and symbolically illuminates the courage of the men who made Operation Magnus Opus a success. The names 'Messines' and 'Magnus Opus' unite the spheres of the operation. The quote 'Not at any price', a paraphrased order to German troops that 'The enemy must not get to Messines at any price' is tragic in light of the 10,000 German troops who were killed in the blast. The ANZAC spirit, despite overwhelming odds and dangers, triumphs to create a legend that we are proud of to this very day.
