New 3-coin set from the RAM! 1942 – Australia under siege! Unlike World War I, Australia endured a genuine, justifiable fear of invasion during World War II – a fear intensified by the intensive bombing raids inflicted by the Japanese on Australia’s northern and eastern coastlines in 1942 and 1943. Undoubtedly the darkest days of World War II, the Japanese forces successfully bombarded a number of Australian cities, with perhaps the midget submarine attacks on Sydney and the lethal air raids on Darwin, known as ‘Australia’s Pearl Harbour’, the most famous. To mark the 70th anniversary of the start of these attacks, the Royal Australian Mint has issued a unique Australian legal tender presentation – each comprising a 50c and two 20c types. Affordable, poignant and important, this 3-coin set is, however, more than just an impressive Australian military commemorative. Not to be issued for general circulation, and therefore never to be secured from your change, these unique types are absolutely crucial to serious decimal collectors. Not to be issued in any other form, these coins are simply a must-have for those seeking to maintain a complete collection.
