The Royal Australian Mint's Anzac Centenary Coin Program has begun with this new release in the popular triangle shape in the unpopular 5 dollar denomination. Don't however be deterred by this, the theme is popular, very collectable and with the Anzac centenary upon us we'll be seeing many many more releases in this coin program as well as a 2014 commemorative dollar coin in circulation. This triangular silver proof coin is limited to a mintage of just 10,000 and is sure to prove very popular with collectors, military enthusiasts and those who simply want to remember. The first coin we saw in this same triangular shape was last year, the 25th anniversary of Parliament House 5 dollar triangular coin and sold out very quickly.

Sit in silence, pay your respects and recite the text on the reverse of the coin depicted over the symbolic dawn scene with the sunrise and red poppies blowing in the breeze. This coin a tribute to those who served.

"at the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them"

With a frosted proof finish this $5 coin weighs 22.23 grams, is 33.9 millimetres in diameter and is struck in 99.9% fine silver. It's presented in a protective capsule in a box with a certificate of authenticity for $85. The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Release date is March 27th 2014.

Update: 31/3/14 This issue is proving extremely popular with demand far outweighing stock of this coin even before it's release date. Currently unavailable at the Mint.
