A highly-anticipated release, the Royal Australian Mint's sensational 2018 Mint Set is here! Launched to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice in 1918, the latest in this much-admired collector series will enjoy even more widespread appeal than usual. Along with collectors, Australian history buffs and militaria aficionados will join the fray rushing to secure this affordable, legal tender keepsake.

Comprises Six Australian Legal Tender Coins

Ranging from the 5c to the $2, all six decimal coin denominations are represented in this comprehensive set. Most of the designs may be familiar, but that's where the familiarity ends: each coin is struck to stunning Brilliant Uncirculated condition, a level of quality that you simply will not see in circulation! Along with the much-admired Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, each coin proudly bears the 2018 date on the obverse.

Contains a Unique $1 Type

In commemoration of the 100 years that have passed since the signing of the Armistice in 1918, the Royal Australian Mint has included a unique, one-year-only $1 type! Not released for circulation and so never to be found in change, this unique issue bears a poignant reverse design. Its cornerstone, the poppy, is a richly symbolic choice; this traditional flower of remembrance is tightly woven into the fabric of Australia's WWI experience. The sense of symbolism is echoed further in the arrangement of stylised military motifs beneath the flowers.

Commemorates the End of WWI, 100 Years On

The years of 1914-1918 saw some of the darkest days in Australia's history. From the ill-fated Gallipoli Campaign to the scores lost on the Western Front and the intensity of the battles fought in the Middle East, the Great War would leave an indelible stamp on society. The signing of the Armistice by France, Britain and Germany on November 11, 1918 meant that the guns would finally fall silent, allowing the country and its people to begin the slow process of rebuilding.

From the Royal Australian Mint

Since the dawn of decimal currency in Australia, the RAM has been the country's main supplier of circulating coinage. Released each year, its Mint Sets are a critical part of Australia's history: essential numismatic artefacts of the year of their issue, to be treasured for generations to come. At the Official Issue Price of just $30, the 2018 Mint Set also represents tremendous value-for-money! Hugely popular with collectors, and part of a numismatic tradition spanning over five decades, the 2018 Mint Set is a critical acquisition for any Australian collector.

Sensational Presentation

Not simply limited to the craftsmanship of the coins, the sense of attention to detail is echoed in this set's superb, official RAM packaging. Graced with a striking, poppy motif in vivid red hues, this stylish presentation folder is also informative, with a description of the Armistice and its significance found within the inner cover.

Already a critical numismatic release, the particularly beautiful presentation - and poignant one-year-only $1 type - elevates the 2018 Mint Set to a whole new realm. For any collector, it's an opportunity simply too good to miss.
