Australia 2005 Remembrance 50c -circulation coin
The 2005 Remembrance 50c coin shown above was released by the Royal Australian Mint into general circulation. It commemorates the 60th Anniversary of World War II and invites us to remember the sacrifices made by our troops in those times. The RAM also released other issues during the year, a one dollar standing for Peace and a Coming Home 20c, fitting accompaniments to this issue. This 50c is the standard 31.51mm dodecagonal coin with plain edging. It is copper nickel weighing 15.55g. The obverse is the standard Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse was designed by RAM sculptor Wojciech Pietranik. It depicts a cemetary and a digger and a priest and mourners, a solemn silent design but a powerful force in remembrance.
