Featuring four superbly designed silver-plated Proofs, the 2017 $1 WWII Defending a Nation 4-Coin Set forms a fine tribute to those who kept Australia safe during the darkest days of World War II.

The year of 1942 saw people across the globe gripped by the chaos of World War II. Whilst many well-known battles raged in Europe, it was the efforts of Australian servicemen and women closer to home - some well know, some lesser known - that would ensure the freedom of Australia's future generations.

To the north, it was the defence of Port Moresby, and the intense battle fought on the now-iconic Kokoda trail. Off the coast of Far North Queensland, it was the battle of the Coral Sea. And on Australian soil, it was the courage shown in the face of the Darwin bombing, a surprise aerial strike that was to send shockwaves across the country. Featuring four 40mm legal tender coins, each struck to immaculate Proof quality, this 75th anniversary tribute will transport you to each of these key moments in, as then Prime Minister John Curtin described it, 'the Battle for Australia'.

Forming a compelling chronicle of the darkest days of WWII, these official legal tender issues carry vivid reverse designs. The perfect finishing touch, each coin is enhanced with a full-colour depiction of a WWII medal ribbon - a stark reminder of the incredible courage and sacrifice of Australia's servicemen and women during this perilous moment in our history.

With a limited mintage of just 1,942, and demand for this set unsurprisingly strong, prompt action is essential.
