Eye-catching, official and exclusive, the Royal Australian Mint's 2015 $1 Unlikely Heroes Murphy the Donkey Al-Br Frunc pays homage to one of Australia's most iconic war heroes.

Serving amid the maelstrom of bullets and bodies at Gallipoli, Murphy helped ferry the wounded from the frontline alongside John Simpson, creating Australia's most powerful military icon - Simpson & the Donkey. After Simpson was killed by a Turkish bullet, some three weeks after the Gallipoli Landing, Murphy served alongside New Zealander Dick Henderson. In 1997, Murphy received the RSPCA Purple Cross for service during the 1914-18 First World War.
