Product Description

The kangaroo has been celebrated as an Australian icon for many, many years, encapsulating everything that is special about our country as they hop gracefully and powerfully across the Aussie landscape. To Aussie diggers serving in distant lands, the kangaroo have long stood as symbols of pride and hope. During Australia’s Baptism of Fire in WWI, many kangaroos were taken to Egypt whilst Aussie troops underwent training. One Aussie kangaroo to achieve lasting fame was Shake, who was pictured shaking hands with an Aussie serviceman in front of the pyramids.

Shake is depicted in fully struck-up relief upon the 25mm diameter flan of this affordable Australian legal tender issue, with the full-colour portrayal of the pyramids forming the perfect backdrop. A touching, important Australian military commemorative, this coin is absolutely crucial to serious decimal collectors. Not to be issued for circulation and never to be found in change, this eye-catching type is a must-have for anyone desperate to preserve a complete collection.
