Product Description

Paying homage to Sandy the War Horse, this official Australian legal tender coin forms a fine addition to the Royal Australian Mint’s 2015 $1 Unlikely Heroes Series.

More than 136,000 Aussie horses journeyed with Australian troops to the battlefields of the First World War, with 6,100 horses initially set to be deployed at Gallipoli. Sandy, one of the 6,100 that left from Albany, Western Australia in November 1914, was the only horse to return to Australia. Owned by Major General Sir William Bridges, who commanded the 1st Australian Division at Gallipoli until killed in May of 1915, Sandy survived the war and was dispatched to Australia in late 1918.

An important Australian military commemorative, this coin is also crucial to serious collectors. Not to be issued for circulation and never to be found in change, the 2015 $1 Unlikely Heroes Sandy the Horse Al-Br Unc is a must-have for anyone desperate to preserve a complete collection.
