This coin, developed with the assistance of the Australian War Memorial, is a stunning keepsake, not only

for military and history enthusiasts but for all Australians.

HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE
Since the guns fell silent over the battlefields of the Western Front at 11am, 11 November 1918, Australians have remembered the fallen on this date. After four years of continuous warfare, Australians celebrated the end of the First World War. They also remembered the servicemen and women who suffered and died during the conflict. On the first anniversary of the Armistice in 1919 the title Armistice Day was officially adopted for 11 November each year. After the Second World War, the date was renamed Remembrance Day in Australia to remember and honour all Australians who fell during wars and armed conflicts.
A century after the signing of the Armistice, Remembrance Day continues to be acknowledged by all Australians as we observe the minute’s silence at 11am.
