2017 $2 'C' Mintmark Coloured Uncirculated Coin - Lest We Forge

As Australia pauses to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in times of war, the celebrated art of Napier Waller from the Australian War Memorial takes pride of place in colour on this collectible version of the newest circulating coin.

Featuring the ‘C’ for Canberra mintmark, this coin will strike a chord with history buffs, military enthusiasts and the families of those who have served.

HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE

Since opening in 1941, the Australian War Memorial has been a celebrated national icon comprising of a museum, an extensive archive of military records and a shrine to those Australians who have served in military conflicts. It welcomes over a million visitors each year to reflect on the service of Australians, fulfilling its mission, ‘to assist Australians to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.’

The building is characterised by its iconic dome, the roof of the Hall of Memory, which was dedicated in 1959. Inside the dome is adorned by a stunning mosaic created by Napier Waller. Within this artwork black swans, waterlilies, bulrushes, the Southern Cross and a golden chain (linking earth to the spirit realm) all symbolise the journey of the fallen soldiers and their ascent to heaven.
