A stunning precious metal celebration of the centenary of the first visit of the Royal Australian Navy Fleet to Sydney, in October 1913, this sparkling Gold Proof Medallion forms an eye-catching, exclusive tribute to this key landmark in Australian military history.

With more than 2,400 sailors and officers on board, the RAN Fleet made a spectacular entrance into Sydney Harbour on 4 October 1913, where they were greeted with a great show of patriotism by thousands of cheering citizens lining the foreshore. The battle cruiser HMAS Australia led the line, with the cruisers Melbourne, Sydney & Encounter and the destroyers Warrego, Parramatta & Yarra following in a single column. Australia's then Prime Minister, Joseph Cook, stated that "Since Captain Cook's arrival, no more memorable event has happened than the advent of the Australian Fleet".
