When HMAS Sydney defeated SMS Emden - a 'lone wolf' that had terrorised Allied shipping in the Indian Ocean in the early days of WWI - she registered Australia's first major naval victory.

Of the 6,429 Mexican Silver Dollars found aboard the German vessel after the Battle of the Cocos, 1,000 were used to create the Sydney-Emden Medal. Conferred upon those aboard the Sydney, this rare, famous medal is valued at over A$3,000 today.
