A unique, one-year-only Australian legal tender type, and a coin you will never find in your change, this official Royal Australian Mint release pays homage to those who served at the Battle of Pozieres in France during the First World War.

A brutal encounter, so typical of WWI, the Battle of Pozieres was scarcely less devastating than Australia's debut on the Western Front at the Battle of Fromelles. Although it resulted in Australian victory, unlike the slaughter at Fromelles, Pozieres saw huge numbers killed or wounded. Indeed, with Australian forces suffering nearly 23,000 casualties from July to September 1916, official war historian Charles Bean stated that Pozieres is more densely sown with Australian sacrifice than any other place on earth.
