2012 20c merchant navy Unc Official Issue Price

Arguably the finest issue of the RAM’s Australia Remembers Series, with the 28.52mm flan dominated by a striking maritime design, this unique military commemorative pays homage to one of the unsung heroes of WWII – the Australian Merchant Navy. Playing a crucial role in the transportation of essential supplies during the war, and suffering a higher rate of casualties than any of the armed forces, the men of the Merchant Navy are remembered for their courage and commitment. Honoured with memorials and service medals, Australia’s merchant mariners have now been enshrined in official Australian legal tender. Not to be issued for circulation, and never to be found in change, this one-year-only 20c type is beautifully presented in an official, informative RAM card.

Honouring the bravery, determination and selfsacrifice of the Aussies who took on Japan in Papua in WWII, the RAM has released this affordable tribute to the 70th anniversary of the Kokoda Campaign.



2012 50c 70th anniversary of the kokoda trail Cu-Ni Unc Official Issue Price at022


One of the most significant battles of the war, the 1942 Kokoda Campaign took place as Japan marched toward the Australian mainland. Although suffering terribly due to the appalling conditions and the ruthlessness of the enemy, Australian soldiers at Kokoda forced the Japanese to abandon their attempt to take Port Moresby. Representing Japan’s first defeat on Australian soil, the campaign has come to be seen by some as the battle that ‘saved Australia’, and has become a key part of the Anzac legend. Depicting the Kokoda memorial on the reverse, this Australian legal tender BU 50c is an important, poignant commemoration of that triumph – and a crucial release for collectors. Not to be issued for circulation, this is the only way you can maintain a complete collection. Set in a RAM pack, and within the reach of all at an Official Issue Price of just A$9.
