The Hall of Memory at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra is one of the most moving places on earth. It is an edifice rich in artistry and reflection. Those who have viewed the stained glass and mosaic tributes to our Fallen are at once humbled by the power of the art in both its form and its message. The Dome crowning the Hall is a particularly moving experience. Six million individual pieces of mosaic unite to tell the story of a soldier’s journey from life to death and beyond. Today, the journey of our fallen heroes finds poignant new expression in a Palace-approved coin struck the honour the 85th anniversary of the ambitious project’s start.

The minter’s art is a millennia-old tradition which is perfectly suited to capture the power and reverence of the Dome’s artistry. Napier Waller’s artistic concept loses none of its power in this celebrated art form. Indeed, it gains a renewed richness across the impressive 65mm diameter of the coin. The detail is so fine that you can imagine all six million pieces of mosaic reaching out to honour the Fallen. The centre glow of the sun and the Southern Cross is especially moving, giving the idea of remembrance a uniquely Australian perspective. The Dome art is embraced by the words “Commemorating the Spirit of our Fallen Heroes — Lest We Forget,” bestowing an affecting finishing touch to the coin’s design

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 “Hall of Memory Dome Commemorative Proof Coin” is a particularly complex size to strike. Proof-quality coining dies create its polished, mirror-like fields and raised imagery. It is entirely layered in pure 24-carat gold creating a shining, elegant tribute to our fallen heroes. 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 in heritage.
