To lose a loved one in war must surely be one of the biggest tragedies a family can face. But to lose someone and not be given the chance to say goodbye, must be an almost unbearable burden to endure. The creation of the Tomb of the Unknown Australian Soldier in 1993 gave families a sense of closure and peace. In the tomb lays a man who represented the finest character of his nation. His sacrifice ensured freedom and in his final resting place, he now brings a tangible sense of honour to his family. In a very real sense, he is a part of all of us. Today, I invite you to join me as we remember him, his sacrifice and his place and his stature as a hero who will never be forgotten. The “Remembering the Unknown Soldier Golden Proof Coin” brings him home to all of us.

He could have been someone’s husband, their son or brother. More importantly, he was everyman who ever served his country unflinchingly. This powerful theme lies at the heart of both the Tomb and our exclusive coin. The design depicts the Soldier standing with head bowed in reverence observing the Tomb which has been inscribed with “An unknown Australian soldier killed in the war of 1914 – 1918.” These moving words have been created in an inlay of valuable rhodium for enduring brilliance. Other tributes include along the traditional exhortations “Lest We Forget” and “We Will Remember”. The design also features three memorial poppies rendered in red enamel and four pillars, each inspired by the four basic elements that symbolise every aspect of creation. It is truly a fitting memorial to those who gave all, for us all. As long as we hold the Anzac spirit close to our hearts, this husband, son or brother will never be forgotten.
