Japan achieved victory after victory in the early months of the Pacific War, and with the enemy moving ever closer to our shores, Australians felt a very real fear of invasion throughout 1942 – a fear intensified by the bombing of Darwin, the midget submarine attacks on Sydney Harbour, the Battle of the Coral Sea and the Kokoda Campaign.
Capturing each of these key events of the Battle for Australia with a fusion of traditional numismatic sculpture and the glory of full-colour, the 2012 $1 Battle for Australia Silver Proof Collection comprises four 40mm official legal tender coins – each crafted to the height of Proof quality from 25g of sterling silver. United within a luxurious timber case, the complete 4-coin set forms a dramatic commemoration of one of the most critical moments in the history of our nation.
Providing a convenient, affordable way to guarantee supply of this outstanding presentation, the 2012 $1 Battle for Australia Silver Proof Collection is to be issued over four months at the rate of one coin per month. Your first coin will be dispatched immediately, along with the 4-coin series case. You will initially be charged A$95 for your first coin, then charged a further A$95 each month for all subsequent coins which will be sent to you over the following three months, with your last coin accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and four numbered prints valued at A$49.95 – yours for FREE!
