A critical Australian victory during WWI forms the inspiration of this superb 50c release from the Royal Australian Mint. This Australian legal tender coin has not been issued for circulation - and is crucial for a complete collection.

In March, 1918, Germany launched its 'spring offensive'. This series of attacks was designed to break through Allied lines, and defeat Britain in the territory it currently held. An unexpected allied victory at Villers-Bretonneux was the first sign that things would not go to plan.

An initial German plan to take the tactically crucial town of Amiens was derailed by Villers-Bretonneux. And early in the morning on 8th August, the Allies launched their own offensive. Combined Australian and Canadian forces caught the German troops off-guard with a surprise attack south of the Somme River. They seized 24 kilometers of German-held territory in a single day.

Victory at Amiens ultimately led to the end of conflict in Europe, and was instrumental in turning the tide of the war.

This Australian legal tender 50c coin has been struck to Uncirculated quality. It arrives in an informative, official Royal Australian Mint card. With the total mintage just 15,000, we recommend you act fast - add this legal tender coin to your collection today!
