Produced in alliance with the Australian War Memorial, the Royal Australian Mint's 2015 50c El Alamein Cu-Ni Unc forms a fitting tribute to Australia's significant contribution to one of the most decisive battles of the Second World War ' and a must-have for serious decimal collectors.

Pitting the Allies against the combined Axis forces of Italy and Germany in North Africa, the two battles of El Alamein represented the turning point of the Western Desert Campaign. The First Battle of El Alamein took place in July 1942, when the Allies stood firm in the face of a fierce Axis offensive, preventing the German and Italian forces from advancing on Alexandria.


Led by Bernard Montgomery, taking on 'The Desert Fox' Erwin van Rommel, the Allies inflicted a crucial defeat in the Second Battle of El Alamein in October and November of the same year. This victory was crucial in preventing the Axis alliance gaining access to the Suez Canal, and to the oil fields of the Middle East, as well as providing a major psychological boost for the Allies.
